Book Description

A relationship with an Alaskan Malamute is one that many envy, few can understand, and none can touch. Those living with this breed understand it is not an obligation, more than a responsibility, and greater than any other commitment—theirs is a way of life. This is the story of Noah—a proud seal and white Malamute—and the impact he made on the lives around him. Detailing what it is like to live with this rare breed of the arctic, all the wonderful (and sometimes not so wonderful) moments are here that would be of interest to anyone with paw prints on their heart. Hoping to positively contribute to the betterment of both humans and animals by raising awareness of the mutual bonds we share, this work explores the many lessons that can be learned from our canine companions.

What readers are saying:

“With passionate intensity, Tommy Williams succeeds in what he sets out to do: to record "what it's like to share one's life with a creature of the Arctic." And what a creature Noah was! "With the power and fury of an avalanche," Williams writes, "Noah descended upon my life." Having been swept away by malamute avalanches, I found Williams's depiction of the experience startlingly familiar and deeply moving. If your love for an individual dog has ever been so profound and so transformative that you have fallen under the thrall of an entire breed, then this marvelous book is for you. If you have ever loved a dog, you will love this book.” – Susan Conant

“If you've ever tried to explain to someone the relationship you have with your dog, or why your Malamute is more than "just a dog", you should have this book on your bookshelf- it has the words for you.” – Ian Luke

“Tommy has captured the essence of what it is like to share your life with an Alaskan Malamute.” – DruAnne Martin

“This is one of the best books I have read.” – Marcia Barnes

And to keep me humble…

“This is hands down one of the worst books I've ever read.” – JMR

While this book may not be what some expect or want it to be, I can assure all it is exactly what I set out to write—The journey I shared with Malko’s Never A Prisoner, Noah. Some of the material may be outside of the reader’s comfort zone, but it is important to recognize what Carradine notes: "The quest for enlightenment is dangerous to the caterpillar but essential to the butterfly."

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read! January 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this ebook. Started this morning and finished this evening. I laughed at many of Noah's antics having seen them in my own Alaskan Malamutes!! I met Noah 1998 at the National Specialty in PA. He is beautifully portrayed in this ebook.

Tommy has captured the essence of what it is like to share your life with an Alaskan Malamute.

I cried at the end, too. He captures what many of us feel when we let go of our beloved malamutes and the dignity we see in these magnificent canines. I recommend this book for the novice and experienced Alaskan Malamute owner. For the novice, you will not feel so alone when you are wondering why your dog did that. And the experienced, you will see your dogs in Noah and remember what it was like owning your first Alaskan Malamute!!

Thank you Tommy (Wild) sharing your story.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a read and a journey! May 30, 2014
By Yvette
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did not expect such an amazing read, initially expecting just another dog book. This book took me on a journey like no other. Being an Alaskan Malamute owner myself I couldn't help but laugh and cry every few pages, relating to so much. But also so many other things brought up like life and love and everything that comes with loving an Alaskan Malamute! What an awesome book!

Having Malamutes, it is really easy to relate to the author and enjoy the memories. The book is actually a testimonial for the breed.
