Descrição

From the most celebrated children's nature writer of our time comes a posthumous new novel in the tradition of her Newbery award-winning "Julie of the Wolves".
In 1848 in Barrow, Alaska, a young Eskimo boy witnesses a rare sight--the birth of a bowhead, or ice whale, that he calls Siku. But when he unwittingly guides Yankee whalers to a pod of bowhead whales, all the whales are killed. For this act, the boy receives a curse of banishment. Through the generations, this curse is handed down. Siku, the ice whale, returns year after year, in reality and dreams, to haunt each descendant. The curse is finally broken when a daughter recognizes and saves the whale, and he in turn saves her. Told in alternating voices, both human and whale, Jean Craighead George's last novel is an ambitious and touching take on the interconnectedness of humans, animals, and the earth they depend on.

    Narrated by Christina Moore. Siku, a bowhead whale, outlives four generations of a Yupik Eskimo family that has vowed to protect him after a 19th-century ancestor inadvertently put a curse on the family by revealing a whaling ground to a Yankee whaler. The highlight of the audio version is the occasional whale sounds incorporated into the narrative which gives the story an added dimension. Ms George has always illuminated the power and wonder of nature for young readers. But I'm just not sure about the "spritual Indian" talk spoken by the Eskimo family's earliest generation. What would Debbie Reese say? Hmmm...
