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 soldier, and a friend. W. Bruce Cameron's The Dog Master 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.

"Guiding listeners through three time periods and multiple early tribes of humans and wolf packs, narrator David Colacci keeps the momentum of the plot swift, the characters distinct, and the atmosphere rich. The tensions, anxieties, and frustrations of these early people and their canine counterparts are palpable in Colacci's boundless reading of a tale about the first dog. Without resorting to exaggerated dramatic effects, he builds an authentic tone of constant danger in an uncertain world of hunter and prey while also establishing passionate relationships--human to human and human to wolf. Exciting and engaging, this story should have wide appeal for audiobook listeners. J.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
