1 Kantner, Seth Ordinary Wolves : A Novel
Minneapolis, MN, U.S.A. Milkweed Editions 2004 1571310444 / 9781571310446 First Edition Hard Cover 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Ice-blue boards. The spine is stamped in silver. Octavo. 324pps. First Printing. There is a slantwise incision, fully closed and unobtrusive (as if by an errant exacto blade), on the spine of the dustjacket; the spine of the book is likewise slightly scratched. Otherwise as new: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has the original price intact on the front flap. A very nice copy of the author's first novel and winner of the Milkweed National Fiction Prize.

"Depicts a life different from what many have ever known. The story is told by Cutuk Hawcly, a boy growing up in remote Alaska. He lives with his father, Abe ('our best friend, no dad at all'), and siblings in a sod igloo, with the pastel arctic sky overhead and animals -- wolves, moose, foxes, ravens -- all around. The Inupiaq village a day's sled drive away is their link to the outside world, one Cutuk knows only through what the mail plane brings and his brother's memories of Chicago. Cutuk idolizes the Inupiaq hunter Enuk Wolfglove and is in love with Enuk's granddaughter, Dawna. In the village he sees the effect of government money on the Inupiaq and knows that he is different, not only because he is white, but also because his father lives in a way few Eskimo would anymore. As he grows older and his brother and sister abandon the tundra for the city, Cutuk -- shy, observant, self-mocking -- wonders if he must too. With the voice of Abe in his head, Enuk's carved ivory in his pocket, and Dawna in his heart, Cutuk finds his way, navigating between sled-dogs and 'snowgos,' between the ancient ways of the wolf pack and the ever-approaching drone of the world beyond."
