From Stephen Baxter, one of today's most acclaimed writers
of science fiction and fantasy, comes this unforgettable
saga of life and loss in the grand tradition of Watership
Down. For fifty thousand springs, Silverhair and her kind,
the last of the woolly mammoths, have lived in a remote
tundra, rimmed by ice and sea and mountain. Soon to be a
mother, Silverhair looks to the future with hope. But even
as her life begins, the world she loves is ending. A new
menace, more vicious than any enemy, is descending upon
the snowlands -- a two-legged creature that kills for joy.
Desperate to save their kind, Silverhair and the
matriarch, Owlheart, must travel across the glacial
torrents, beyond the saw-toothed mountains. There they
will seek help from the distant cousins who found their
destiny in the sea, and from an enemy -- an ice-faced
menace known as...the Lost
