"Coming of age in a remote Alaskan village, a mixed-race boy lashes out in anger—at his father for abandoning his family, at outsiders for forcing change, and at his teacher, who holds over him a secret Joseph would rather forget. Publishers Weekly called this sensitive novel "a vivid portrait of modern Eskimo lifestyles, conflicts and fears."
