Julie è una ragazza eschimese di tredici anni. Sposata giovanissima con un estraneo che la terrorizza, decide di fuggire. Il suo sogno è raggiungere San Francisco, dove abita Amy, la sua amica di penna, e vedere finalmente la televisione, le macchine sportive, i jeans, i bikini, gli hamburger e le altre meraviglie di cui l’amica le parla nelle sue lettere. Comincia così il suo viaggio attraverso la tundra, proprio mentre l’inverno sta per arrivare...
Persa in quel freddo deserto, la giovane si affiderà alla protezione dei lupi, grandi fratelli buoni dei quali ha imparato le abitudini e il linguaggio; ma neppure le immense distese artiche potranno mettere al riparo lei e i suoi amici dalla crudeltà dei bianchi, e presto la ragazza-lupo si troverà a scegliere tra il vecchio e il nuovo mondo…
Un grande romanzo di formazione, un’avventura straordinaria, epica e travolgente dall’autrice che ha formato l’immaginario di milioni di giovani americani.
