FAR NORTH cover image
A moralistic tale in which two young people lead their warring native cultures of the North Pole to overcome their differences and fend off an aggressive, exploitative, technological culture to the south. Although there is significant violence, it is justified by the goal of saving the world, and dangerous behavior is set in a place and time so removed from reality as not to be replicable. We disapproved of the generalization of "noble savage" stereotyping of indigenous people. There are imaginative elements, particularly in the relationship between people and animals. The importance of friendship and acceptance of cultural diversity are modeled.
