The story of an Arctic drama 6 mars 2001
Par Isabel Harding - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Based on her experiences visiting the Arctic and the whale camp where her son works, beloved children's nature writer Jean Craighead George presents a beautiful story for older readers. It tells the story of a young man, Lincoln, who goes to the top of the world and the northernmost place in the U.S., Point Barrow, home of the bowhead whale and the Inupiat Eskimo. Lincoln comes searching for his long-lost Uncle Jack and to find the roots of his Eskimo heritage, but instead faces his destiny when the captain of an Eskimo whaling camp tells him that a whale is coming to him. Uncle Jack came to the Arctic to try to convince the Eskimo not to hunt the threatened bowhead, and Lincoln, when a turn of events causes him to become the whaling captain, is torn between whether to respect Uncle Jack's environmental plea, or to honor the beloved whaling captain by killing the great whale. Though Lincoln slowly comes to feel like a true Eskimo by weaving himself into their culture and customs, he sadly realizes that he can never be one of these magnificent and efficient people. Romance becomes the main thing that causes Lincoln to realize this, and the heroine he becomes attracted to is as strong and beautiful as the main character in Ms. George's other Arctic novel for young adults, JULIE OF THE WOLVES. The ending is poignant and unforgettable, and out of Ms. George's eighty plus environmental stories, WATER SKY is probably the most provocative and thoughtful. Fans of the Julie books and the spectacular picture book, ARCTIC SON, will adore this story that is at the same time icy, thoughtful, inventive, tragic, and altogether a rewarding read.

Thankful for a warm bed and a blanket 16 juin 2002
Par The Accidental Reader - Publié sur
Format: Belle reliure
Very enjoyable. The plot and the characters were just as compelling as outlined by many of the other reviewers. However, what was most valuable to me was the description of life in the arctic. Books describing something that I know absolutely NOTHING about are very valuable to me. And believe me, before reading this I knew nothing about having to eat the duck's beak from the stew in order to please the host(ess). Descriptions of just how cold it can get--especially at night when the hero was trying to sleep---- were also very moving for me.

Interesting Picture of Another Culture 18 juin 2015
Par Emma - Publié sur
Format: Broché
where he hopes to find his Uncle Jack who went there to stop the Eskimos from killing whales.
Water Sky is an interesting look at the Eskimo/Inuit culture, through the eyes of an outsider. At the end of the school year, Lincoln is sent to Point Barrow, Alaska to find an old friend of his father’s, Vincent Ologak. When he arrives, he learns that Vincent is the captain of a whaling crew camped out on the ice at the edge of the Arctic Ocean, trying to get a whale for Barrow town. Because his adored Uncle Jack has come to Barrow to stop the whaling, Lincoln has very mixed feelings about this. However, he quickly becomes part of the whaling crew as he is thrown into life on the ice.
As Lincoln learns more about the Eskimo, including that his own grandmother was Eskimo, he also learns about the vital importance of whaling to the native people. Vincent Ologak is convinced that a great whale is coming to “give” himself to Lincoln. And, no one will answer Lincoln’s inquiries about the whereabouts of Uncle Jack.
I appreciated the glimpse into another culture, but I didn’t care for the spiritual aspect of the story. The Eskimo seem to have a supernatural connection with and communication with the whales, and pray to them and to the forces of nature around them. I was not totally comfortable with this; it is something to discuss with your children as you read Water Sky.

Water Sky 2 janvier 2004
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur
Format: Relié
(Review by an eleven-year-old fifth-grader, who read this book for a home school assignment)
Water Sky is about a boy named Lincoln who goes to Alaska to find his Uncle Jack, but ends up in a whaling camp. At the whaling camp, he learns what it's like to be an Eskimo whaler. He even comes face to face with a polar bear! Every one says he has a "whale coming to him," so he tries to kill one. The rest of the book shows how he proves them right.
I enjoyed the adventures in this book and I think people who like other cultures should read this book.

It tells a detailed and wonderful look into the Artic. 31 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book shows the ways of life in a part of the world we rarley hear about or think of. It opens another door into a childs mind. I rate it 4 stars because some children have found it only slightly boring in the beginning. Otherwise they are "glued" to the pages reading and reading to the book's next adventures.
