《為了與你相遇》作者W. Bruce Cameron,又一部感人的故事,史上第一隻狗如何誕生,人類如何因為狗而成為最具生存力的物種,愛狗人士絕對不能錯過的小說。

「Cameron以狗為主題的最新小說,將吸引Jane Auel的經典著作《愛拉與穴熊族》(The Clan and the Cave Bear)以及更多關於當代犬人之間故事的書迷。」
--《圖書館期刊》(Library Journal)

「讀者將大口吞食這精采的故事,並且從頭哭到尾,甜蜜而真摯,看上去Cameron手握的又是另一本暢銷書。」
--《出版人周刊》(Publishers Weekly)星級推薦作者另一本書”A Dog’s Journey”

場景設定在人類史上最戲劇化的時代,The Dog Master訴說的是一個部族求生存的故事,一個不平凡的男人與一匹狼的關係,這是永遠改變人類命運的一場人犬之間的友誼。

3萬年前,暴雪紛飛,冰封大地。人類被刺骨的寒冷逼著走出樹林來到草原,在各個物種當中,人既是掠奪者也是獵物。

使我們成為人的經驗,我們並不陌生:母親的愛、父親的背叛、部族的戰爭、日益加重的飢荒、政治的密謀、禁忌之愛、歡樂與希望、毀滅的失落 – 我們的祖先在殘酷的大地上為極少的資源而競爭。

人類站在滅絕的冷酷邊緣,但是他們有一個凌駕所有物種的獨一無二的優勢:一群被馴養的狼。

千載難逢的情況,才能使最兇惡的動物之一變成狩獵的夥伴、保鑣、戰士與朋友。W. Bruce Cameron的The Dog Master是對史前時代的一瞥、充滿情感的青春冒險、人類克服一切困難的生存,也是想像歷史上第一隻狗如何誕生的激昂故事。


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 soldier, 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.
