The Shadow Hunter - Pat Murphy

The Shadow Hunter was partially rewritten and republished in 2002.

In The Shadow Hunter, originally published in 1982, a young Neanderthal is transported from the ancient past to a future of brilliant and terrifying possibilities. He brings the spiritual beliefs of his people to this alien world, while maintaining a connection with the earth and with the spirits of animals. The clash of prehistoric shamanic traditions with future technology makes for a gripping tale – the first novel written by this Nebula Award-winning author.

“Murphy’s [blend] of fantasy and reality honorably recalls the novels of Margaret Atwood.”Publishers Weekly
