Kalak of the Ice

By Jim Kjelgaard

Kalak of the Ice is one in all Jim Kjelgaard's few books that don't focus on a puppy. This booklet is, as are all of his, a good photograph of existence within the barren region. It makes a speciality of the existence struggles and awesome international of a feminine polar endure named Kalak who lives within the some distance north. even though it really is possibly no longer as addictively interesting as a few of Kjelgaard's different books, and as a result rated merely four stars, I certainly suggest Kalak of the Ice to any younger reader attracted to flora and fauna.
