Gary Paulsen's Dogsong - a Newbery Honor Book and an ALA Best Book for Young Adults - is the graphic, coming-of-age tale of a modern Eskimo lad and his consuming vision quest and harrowing struggle for survival.

Troubled by changes in his Alaskan village, 14-year-old Russell Suskitt seeks the counsel of the village elder - and only dog team owner. After his training in the ancient arts of hunting with bow and lance, handling sled dogs, and surviving arctic dangers, Russell embarks upon his lonely search for Eskimo manhood.

    " I enjoyed this book and plan to recommend it to my sons who are fans of Hatchet. I could not help but compare this book to Julie of the Wolves, which I loved as a young adult. Dogsong is the story of a young native american, Eskimo boy who finds himself dissillusioned with the modern ways that he see encroaching on the old traditions. This boy, Russell decides to start out on his own to find the answers. With the help of an old blind man, OOgruk, Russel finds himself on a quest to find the answers he seeks. He and his sled dog team face many adventures and obstacles as they search and fight for survival and thier answers. "

    " Dogsong was a very good eye opening book from the view of the eskimo prospective.This book is about a young boy that doesn't know what to do with his life and needs help. His father tells him to go talk to an old man in the village they live in that has been around a very long time and knows a lot of things he can share with him to try and help him find what needs to happen. My favorite quote from this book is "Would you like some deer eyes now or later?" The old man said that talking to the boy because the old man absolutely loves eyes for some odd reason that is only one of the very many things that make him very unique. After the two talking for a while the boy borrows the mans dog sled and the team to go out on the ice and tundra to hunt to find his song. After a while he does find his song and it has something about his dogs in it that is where the book got it's title and I think that is a very good title because it really fits the book well. "
