Set on the Siberian savannah 20,000 years ago, this is the fascinating tale of a tribe at the dawning of time -- and of Kori, the questing young man who defied his clan and his powerful father for the love of a passionate stranger. Acting on a mixture of impulse, lust and unnamed yearning, Kori abducted the woman as she swam alone in a pool on his father's hunting land. Unable to speak his language, she is regarded by his companions as little more than an animal. At night, in the lodge, he caressed his exotic captive; by day, she slowly learned the ways of his people. Slave and stranger, she could never be a wife, yet she gave him a son and joy beyond imagining. But Kori, who stalked as one with the tiger, the lion, the wolf, fell victim to a secret taboo that shattered his happiness. Now he would embark on the greatest, most dangerous hunt of all.
