This strange story might have taken place a few years or a few thousand years ago.

Balulu is an Australian aborigine. He is a desert hunter whose life is an endless search for food and water. He has never worn clothing, never heard of a building, never seen any humans except other wandering tribesmen. Everything he owns he has made himself and can carry with him: his curved boomerangs and long spears, his throwing stick and implements for making fire.

Yet Balulu has other possessions: a hunter's keen senses and tireless endurance, vast knowledge and understanding of animals, the ability to find his way across unmarked desert. Best of all, he has the friendship and loyalty of Warrigal, the big, red-furred dingo he has tamed.

This is the adventurous saga of Balulu and the dog-like dingo. As in Fire-Hunter nad Wild Trek, jim Kjelgaard makes the ever-appealing theme of primitive wilderness survival come to vivid life. [Suggest a different description.]
