Kelderek the hunter, who loves and trusts the great bear, is swept on by destiny to become first devotee and then prophet, then victorious soldier, then ruler of an empire and priest-king of Lord Shardik – Messenger of God – only to discover ever-deeper layers of meaning implicit in his passionate belief in the bear's divinity.
