Publisher's Summary

Part wolf, part Husky, he was born to the wilderness and carried his burden among men stoically. He had known starvation, bitter cold, overwork and suffering at the cruel hand of man. He was a giant among his kind and as fearless as the men who drove him mercilessly through the perils of a frozen world. And now, through the uncertain hand of fate, he is free...he is called Kazan, the Wild Dog. But his journey has just begun and survival against the unforgiving wilderness with his blind mate, Grey Wolf, is a personal challenge. He had never known fear...until now!

Any additional comments?

Before Jack London there was James Oliver Curwood. Before White Fang there was Kazan a truly mighty animal that was part wolf and part dog. It is his story of love and hate and the will to live.
Kazan starts out with human love and warmth and the story ends with pure animal love. It has the desperation of starvation, the warmth of true love, the pure hate of man and the fear of fear itself.
It is a very moving story and the author clearly has a fundamental knowledge of the gold rush days, life in the great white north, the bitter cold, driving snow, desperation of hunger for both animal and human alike.
I would recommend this beautifully told novel to anyone who loves adventure, romance, antiquity and excitement. Once started it is hard to switch it off.
