From the East Coast Hudson Bay Inuits comes an exciting, authentic tale of a pale-haired child, exiled by her own people because she was "Anatou—the different one." In a village ruled by spirits, shamans, superstition and myth, such a different one has no place. During a famine, her parents disappear in a storm, and Anatou is cast out by the community. She seeks out the forest, into which no Inuit goes, and begs the Wood God to turn her into a wolf.

- "The Ice Wolf was a fantastically well written play that worked out very well for our one-act festival. The message it sends about accepting others for who they are is a great lesson to learn."
- Review by Nora Franklin, Stinson Middle School, San Antonio, Texas
- "I was moved by the language and most of all by the heroine, Anatou. She is strong and loving as a character against all odds. It is a work that is timeless."
