YOUNG ADULTS
The classic tale of a young Eskimo girl who chooses to run with the wolves rather than submit to a cruel husband. This young adult novel whipped up some controversy on publication in 1972, due to brief but violent sexual content, and we would caution parents that it's most appropriate for teens and sophisticated pre-teens.
