Descriere

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.

    Russell is a young boy in an Eskimo village who is unhappy that his people have strayed from their traditions. He takes the village shaman's dogs and sled out alone, on a quest to find his own song.I've generally enjoyed Paulsen's books, but I couldn't get into this one at all. Just not my cuppa, I suppose.

    This is my second Gary Paulsen book, and I think I liked it better than the first, "Hatchet", which I liked a lot.This story revolves around an young teenager who is suddenly unhappy about his life, but is not sure why. His father has found hope and life in his faith, but Russel is drawn to the ways of the past, of the sled and dogs, of the closeness with the natural world. He seeks out the elder in the village, and through his teaching and dreams, finds himself on a quest to run his sled and dogs as long and as far as he can.The author has a writing style that is interesting, that draws you into the story and keeps you turning the pages. I started this book at the bus stop before work, picked it up again after supper, and proceeded to complete it just past midnight. I'm tired today, but "Dogsong" was worth it!

    Want to read about an fourteen year old Eskimo who sled races across Alaska?Russell Susskit is the boy you’re looking for! Of course, he’ll have to break in the dogs, brave the elements, and pray he doesn’t starve to death or get killed by caribou. To win this race, he’ll have to draw from the strength of his people to become a true leader….a pack leader. If for no other reason than to save the girl that fate has put onto his sled.Gary Paulson’s done it again! His tale of bravery in the face of nature will awe any young mind. Especially your male students. There’s no better way to introduce them to literature than to get their adrenaline pumping with this story of survival!

    A boy ants to bring back the old ways to the village. But it is said that you go to hell if you do. I reccomend this book for people who like dogs and adventure.

    Russel is a young man who sees his people are estranged from their Eskimo culture. He makes his way to Oogruk, an Eskimo shaman and wise man. Oogruk teaches Russel how to hunt and how to survive and sends him off on his own to test his abilities. This is what our young men are seeking, I think, even in America today…a way to connect with their elders and learn to make it on their own…heroism…adventure…sacrifice.

    Russel learns the ways of the olden times and sets off to find his own song. On his way, he keeps having dreams of the older version of himself and meets a prengant girl half dead, and set off to the north pole.

    Native Alaskan Russel Susskit hates waking up in the morning to the sound of his father's coughing and snowmobiles starting up. Oogruk, the shaman, has the last dog team in the village. Driven by a strange, powerfuld dream of a long-ago self, Russel and the dogs set out on a journey of self-discovery. Bundle up warm and had a hot drink beside you as you read this tale of the Arctic cold.

    Dogsong is a powerful, coming of age adventure. Paulsen clearly depicts the conflict that Russel Susskit feels as he is seeking balance between the modern world and the traditional world. The reader is able to picture the barren, cold environment of the far north. The struggle to survive alone in this harsh environment is well detailed. The hunts are well documented and easily understood by readers with little or no experience with hunting. The story moves slowly as Russel tries to understand his place in the song. It bothered me that Paulsen chose to use the term Eskimo instead of Inuit.
