Banned Books Project
Julie of the Wolves, by Jean Craighead George, published in 1972
the reason this book was banned centered around an awkward unwanted sexual advance.
oddly enough the real story is much meaner and bloodier. especially the wanton destruction of wolves and beautiful raw alaska arctic.
the other story is the fortitude and resourcefulness of this young girl julie. it's a book for every child, but more than that it's a book for every young girl. julie is or should be an icon of a new feminist movement. i chose to focus on that.
