He is born on a bare hillside near the end of the Dry Time. Abandoned by his mother, cared for and suckled only by a dog, he becomes a creature of the wilds. To the poor villagers, he hardly appears human at all, and they reject him.
Yet the dog-boy, as he is called, proves to be a survivor. Against the odds, and in spite of his savage upbringing, he grows into a 'special' child – someone destined to change the lives of all who cross is path.
From a master fantasy writer comes the compelling story of a boy's strange and perilous journey to manhood. Here is the tale which questions who we are and how we relate to the natural world.
