Kurt, Onah and their father survive the massacre of their village on Stone Age Dartmoor. They escape, and try and start life again. Kurt is fascinated by the horses, thinking that they can mean far more to the family than just a source of food; Onah finds a wolf, unlike other wolves. This one seems to want human company. This is an intriguing story of how domestication might have happened.
