Jan is a Lap boy who shares with us in this story his adventure of growing up in Lapland. With reindeer as their livelihood they must follow wherever the deer take them. The make the adventure across the frozen terrain to the seashore where they spend a while before the deer take them back to their home. Wolves, snow and cold are just some of the adventures and fun they have on their trek to follow the reindeer.
This would be a good book to read to learn more about Lapland and its people. It does have a pictured list of some of the things they make out of reindeer. Overall, this book was well written, I like a little clearer pictures but the story was very interesting and educational for me.
