This sequel to George's Newbery Medal-winning Julie of the Wolves continues the story of Julie Edwards Miyax Kapugen, now living in the Eskimo village of Kangik with her father, Kapugen. Julie worries that her father will shoot the wolves if they threaten the herd he is raising as part of the village's industry.
Julie's decision to return home to her people is not an easy one. But after many months in the wilderness, living in harmony with the wolves that saved her life, she knows the time has come.
Julie is not prepared, however, for all the changes that she finds. Her father has forsaken many of the old Eskimo traditions. He has given up his sled dogs for a snowmobile, and now looks after the musk oxen that serve as the village's income. He will do anything to protect them -- even shoot any wolves that might threaten the herd. Julie knows that, like her father, she must find a way to reconcile the old ways with the new. But how can she do that without putting her beloved wolves in danger?
