Bear - Back Cover
Take a trip to the Arctic where the landscape is cold and harsh, but the Eskimo people who live there are warm and welcoming. Wendell Minorâs detailed watercolor paintings of majestic wildlife and vast, icy country are the perfect accompaniment to Newberry medalist Jean Craighead George's story of the beautiful Inupiat Eskimo culture.

From Horn Book

Luke, a white child born in a small town near the Arctic Ocean, is given an Eskimo name-- Kupaaq--by Aalak, an Eskimo friend of Luke's parents. As Kupaaq grows, Aalak teaches him about Eskimo culture and Arctic life--the northen lights, fish camp, snow caves, whale camp. The cold and darkness of the region are contrasted with the warmth of the Eskimo culture in both the simple text and the detailed, realistic watercolors.
