Mikaelsen's award-winning tale of a juvenile offender's banishment at the hands of Native American Circle Justice now includes a reading group guide and questions, and an interview with the author.
From the Publisher:
After his anger erupts into violence, Cole, in order to avoid going to prison, agrees to participate in a sentencing alternative based on the Native American Circle Justice, and he is sent to a remote Alaskan Island where an encounter with a huge Spirit Bear changes his life.After Cole's anger erupts into violence, he agrees to a sentencing alternative based on the Native American Circle Justice, and is sent to a remote Alaskan island where an encounter with Spirit Bear changes his life.
Cole Mattews has been violent and destructive for most of his 15 years, but when his beating of Peter Driscal results in brain damage, Cole is forced to face the consequences. Sent to an island in the harsh climes of Alaska, he must fend for himself for a year. Initially thinking that he can escape the island, the troubled teen is set upon by a giant white bear. This savage attack is the beginning of Cole's transformation from a brutal, angry boy into a sensitive, changed individual.


"Mikaelsen's portrayal of this angry, manipulative, damaged teen is dead on." 2/1/2001
