Good dog. Bad man.
Highlow will never understand humans. Not even his wonderful sausage-giving Master.
Humans smell through their eyes, talk instead of sniffing arses, and believe there's a maximum number of sausages a dog should eat at one time.
What Highlow really doesn't understand, though, is the strange, hard, round thing he finds near the Black Cliffs of Dover. He especially doesn't understand why some newly arrived, orange-suited Fancyman is so obsessed with seeing it... and why Highlow wants nothing more than to get Master away from him before it's too late.
The Rucksack Universe series combines alternate history, speculative fiction, myth, adventure, globetrotting, and intrigue—all with well-poured pints of beer. Library Journal says Anthony St. Clair’s storytelling has “universe building reminiscent of Terry Pratchett,” and readers say they love the Rucksack Universe’s unique combination of “quirk, wit, travel, and magic.”
