(From the publisher):
This is the story of Tiger, son of the Chief of a peaceful village of Homo sapiens hunters, and his passion to avenge his people. The only survivor of a savage attack against his tribe, Tiger roams the landscapes of Ice Age Europe, hunting mammoth and saber-tooth tiger, struggling for survival in a world of constant danger, always searching for Shelk, the brutal warrior who killed his father.
Completely alone and badly wounded, Tiger is rescued by a Neandertal clan Ś the alien creatures he had heard about but never seen. On the clan's island, far in the north, Tiger learns the Neandertal language, falls in love with Veyde, their proud and beautiful leader, and discovers the deeply human side of a people he had despised as barbaric.
Tiger finally faces Shelk in a dramatic confrontation which calls up all the cunning of the animal for whom he was named. And in a totally ingenious twist, we discover what may be the solution to prehistory's most puzzling mystery: the disappearance of the Neandertals from the face of the earth.
