Red Deer author Sigmund Brouwer has gone back to the Stone Age with his latest book for middle-school students.
Brouwer’s new novel, Clan, is being billed as “a classic survival story” set in prehistoric times.
A young boy, who rescues a saber-tooth tiger cub from a dire wolf attack, brings his new animal friend back to his family clan. But Atlati soon discovers a saber-tooth tiger cub may not be the best pet.
A series of events unfold that lead to Atlati’s banishment from the clan. This is considered the worst punishment possible, as the boy will have to fend for himself in an inhospitable, violent world that includes a short-nosed bear, gigantic dire wolves and cheetahs.
Brouwer, an award-winning author of nearly 30 novels, including Thief of Glory, wrote his new book as a page-turner, designed to pull teen readers along with questions such as: will Atlati be able to survive in the wilds using his wits, ingenuity and courage?
Clan is available from Chapters, Amazon and other booksellers.
