Although Jean Auel obviously takes certain liberties with the actions and motivations of all our ancestors, her extensive research into the Ice Age does shine through--especially in the detailed knowledge of plants and natural remedies used by the medicine woman and passed down to Ayla. Mostly, though, this first in the series of four is a wonderful story of survival. Ayla's personal evolution is a compelling and relevant tale. --Sara Nickerson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I read this book for the first time more than 10 years ago, and I found it fascinating.
Before you start reading this book make sure you have plenty of time available, because you will not be able to put the book done once you started reading.
Jean M. Auel has written a great book, well researched, great character development, and wonderful story line.
Is a nice book, but is very cruel with animals. I don't think antique people kill animals just because they were ugly or just don't like the hyenas, wolverines, etc.Published 1 day ago by Oscar Tirado
