Mighty, ferocious, and unpredictable, Shardik the Bear has returned, and his advent commences a momentous chain of events among the half-barbaric Ortelgan people. In this highly imaginative 1974 fantasy epic for young adult readers by the author of Watership Down, Kelderek the hunter is swept up by destiny to become first devotee and then prophet of the bear. As the ruler of an empire and priest-king of Lord Shardik—Messenger of God—Kelderek will battle the region's slave traders, even as he discovers ever-deeper layers of meaning implicit in his passionate belief in the bear's divinity.
