The Alaskan Malamute : Never a Prisoner

The Alaskan Malamute : Never a Prisoner


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."
