About This Item
The story focuses on the rivalry between two sheepdogs and their masters, and chronicles the coming of age of a boy who is caught between them. David M'Adam, the boy, was half-orphaned by the death of his mother, and is left to the care of his father, Adam M'Adam, a sarcastic, angry alcoholic with a few redeeming qualities. M'Adam is the owner of Red Wull, a huge, violent dog who herds his sheep by brute force.
