Publisher's Summary

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.

"Interesting speculative history with a satisfying conclusion...." ( Kirkus)
"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." ( AudioFile)

Best audiobook yet

I am a dog lover so am biased but I loved this more than the 20+ audiobooks I have listened to so far. It is an artfully woven tale full of marvelous surprises.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Dog Master to be better than the print version?

The story got a bit mangled. The author moves around in time and tells the story from multiple perpectives. Great for a long car ride. Hard to follow if you only have 1 hour at a time.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dog Master?

If you love animals you will love this book.

Have you listened to any of David Colacci’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, tears and laughter!!
