Set against the most dramatic time in our species' history, The Dog Master tells the story of one tribe's struggle for survival and one extraordinary man's bond with a wolf-a friendship that changed mankind forever.Thirty thousand years ago, ice was storming the planet. Among the species forced out of the trees and onto the steppes by the advancing cold was modern man, who was both predator and prey. No stranger to the experiences that make us human-a mother's love and a father's betrayal, tribal war and increasing famine, political intrigue and forbidden love, joy and hope and devastating loss-our ancestors competed for scant resources in a brutal landscape. Mankind stood on the cold brink of extinction...but they had a unique advantage over other species, a new technology-domesticated wolves. Only a set of extraordinary circumstances could have transformed one of these fierce creatures into a hunting companion, a bodyguard, a solider, and a friend. The Dog Master by W. Bruce Cameron is an evocative glimpse of prehistory, an emotional coming of age saga, a thrilling tale of survival against all odds, and the exciting, imaginative story of the first dog. "Astounding in scope and emotional density, THE DOG MASTER is a compulsively addictive read. Cameron has a talent for storytelling and creating flesh and blood characters, both human and canine, that grab you by the scruff of the neck and refuse to let go, even long after you’ve finished the final sentence."
"“The Dog Master by W. Bruce Cameron is an evocative glimpse at prehistory, a heartwarming coming of age saga, and an exciting, imaginative look at the story of the first dog.”
“There’s much imagination, danger and bloodletting…interesting speculative history and a satisfying conclusion.”
"A stunning saga of survival, betrayal and, ultimately, love and loyalty in a time before recorded history, The Dog Master grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go. Not since Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth has a tale on an epic scale so engrossed me. This is W. Bruce Cameron's true triumph of imagination and empathy."
