Clan of the Wolfdogs:
When You Face Death Everyday…Loyalty Matters
Clan of the Wolfdogs transports readers into the raw, prehistoric period to experience how we became modern humans, and dogs became our best allies.
Inspired by the research of noted paleoanthropologist Dr. Pat Shipman, young Irik struggles to live up to his father’s expectations while his mother nurtures him in a culture that demands he take a woman at fourteen winters and kill others at sixteen.
The boy’s preternatural ability to capture the spiritual connection between humans and animals by drawing them on cave walls is lost when his clan chief father is killed by lions during a hunt. To redeem his honor, he tames and trains wolves to help slaughter whole herds of game and becomes a powerful clan chief.
Irik proves himself by bringing the clan through unheard of natural disasters and past the brink of starvation, until a pact with a cannibalistic tribe turns deadly. When his first mate, the clan’s territory, and its mother wolf are all lost in a second battle with the White Tribe, will he seek revenge?
Or will Arol, his childhood soulmate, come back into his life to help him evolve and find a better, more humanistic way? The story will inspire you to consider your own beliefs about today’s tribal culture.
About the Author
Growing up in the Northern Minnesota woods, hiking with his dog, Pal, Tom Berquist observed and experienced the wonders of wildlife: being chased by a mother moose protecting her calf, watching a red fox scavenge his campsite, a blind skunk tipping a saucer of milk over on itself. He wanted to become a game warden and vowed he’d never work in an office. Following service in the army and graduate school he ended up in New York, writing advertising copy. Many years later, a mountain lion left South Dakota and travelled some seventeen-hundred miles across the country in search of a mate. It was killed near Tom’s home in Connecticut and it’s journey rekindled his passion to write about the wildlife he loved.
