Humans and dogs have a long, intertwined history together. Through the eyes of each of them today, we can see the evolution of that relationship. 15,000 years ago our relationship with canines changed forever. Once destined to be adversaries, they became our partners, and even like kin. Now an elite few continue to embrace this primordial bond across species in order to thrive amid some of the most gloriously unspoiled yet mortally unforgiving wilderness left on earth.
