"When Liev’s father is murdered, he becomes a different boy. No longer the practical joker, he is sullen and withdrawn. Determined to avenge his fathers death, he sneaks onboard Thorstein’s skiff and, once they are out at sea headed toward Iceland, he challenges him to a duel. After agreeing to wait until he is older, the party runs into a storm that results in Liev being found on shore by Narua and Apuluk, Inuit brother and sister, who nurse him back to health, teach him some of their language, and eventually introduce him to their tribe. While the Inuit are suspicious of Live at first, he soon becomes a part of their tribe, enjoying the Inuit way of life and becoming a brother to Narua and Apuluk.Lovers of adventure and wilderness novels will enjoy this tale. It’s a bit like a Jack London novel for younger readers—adventure, battling the elements, and encountering unknown people and animals. This title could be used in classrooms studying geography or indigenous cultures or as a selection for class study. It is a good choice for a book club, particularly one aimed at boys, with possible programming activities focused on crafts or games based on Inuit culture. It was reviewed by Kirkus and School Library Journal."
