"A fierce Inuit hunter, embittered by his boyhood loss of a beloved dog, is made gentle by discovering the futility of hate. Atuk mourns for years after Taruk's death, until he is finally strong enough to kill the wolf who killed the dog--only to realize that his vengeance is meaningless since it doesn't bring Taruk back. . . . A moving piece of story-making."--Kirkus. Full color.
