Chapter 21
Chapter Summary: 
Young wolves play, mock fight, and dig up old bones from the tundra. This is their first winter snow. They watch winter descend upon the land they have known for a "hundred thousand generations before any colors of human."

Discussion Questions:

How might Cutuk be like the young wolves?

Points to Consider:

  • He's learned by watching, but also has taken missteps, like the young wolves digging up old bones that provide no nourishment.

What "colors of human" have the wolves seen?

Points to Consider:

  • The wolves have been there as the first humans entered the land, followed by all the other "colors" of people who arrived in the arctic.
