Julie's Wolf Pack is a 1997 novel written by Jean Craighead George. It is the second sequel to the Newbery Medal winner Julie of the Wolves after Julie, and the last in the Julie of the Wolves trilogy. It is the only book in the series whose story is told from the viewpoint of the wolves themselves, rather than from Julie's point of view.

Background[edit]

One day, while looking for wolves from an airplane on the North Slope of Alaska, the idea for a third book in the Julie of the Wolves series occurred to Jean.[1]

Plot summary[edit]

The story deals with Kapu the black wolf leading his pack (called the Avaliks) and then his daughter Sweet Fur Amy taking over with her mate Storm Call. The book is divided into three parts.

Kapu, the Alpha[edit]

Ice Blink, the Stranger[edit]

Sweet Fur Amy, the New Alpha[edit]

Reception[edit]

J. D. Biersdorfer of The New York Times wrote, "Jean Craighead George has spent decades observing and recording the life styles of the wild and wolfish, and her love for the subject matter is clearly evident in the smooth assuredness of her narrative."[2] Deborah Abbott of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote, "Read alone, or as part of the trilogy, this book captivates."[3]
