    One thought on “Ood-Le-Uk the Wanderer”

    1. Though I think this book is considered to be a children s book, I m going to call it YA because of the age of the protagonist 16 at the outset of the story Ood Le Uk is an Alaskan Eskimo boy who becomes separated from his tribe and ends up having a series of adventures during which he learns about the world of other peoples outside of his tribe, both in Alaska and across the Bering Strait in Siberia I enjoyed reading about the customs and daily life of these people, and shared Ood Le Uk s excite [...]

    3. This book was really, really good I was shocked I didn t put much faith in a coming of age story in the Arctic butI loved it It was so well written and exciting The depth of the character development without a lot of dialogue was so amazingly well done I especially loved the theme of fear and how it can shake you to your core but how to persevere through it and be guided by what is right and true.

    4. Although older now, this is still interesting and timely A young tribal member from Alaska gets separated and set adrift ending up across the Bering straight and makes a home with a tribe there After many adventures he continues his travels returning to north america and starts trading.

    5. A young Eskimo in Alaska becomes lost, travels through Russia with new adventures and learning experience and returns a man.
