Leave 21st century London and go back to Ice Age Europe. Follow Ayla, a Cro-Magnon child who loses her parents in an earthquake and is adopted by a tribe of Neanderthal, the Clan.See how the Clan's wary suspicion is gradually transformed into acceptance of this girl, so different from them, under the guidance of its medicine woman Iza and its wise holy man Creb. Immerse yourself in a world dictated by the demands of survival in a hostile environment, and be swept away in an epic tale of love, identity and struggle.
The time before time, Neolithic Europe. The clans of Neanderthals roam the land, and so do the Others (primitive humans). When a great earthquake collapses the home cave of the Cave Bear clan, they are forced to brave the wilderness in search of a new shelter. The discovery of a child of the Others sows concern among the clan, but to leave her is to leave a child to die.
Jean M. Auel spins a fantastic tale of community and historical culture, as historically accurate as it comes. If you enjoy stories about survival and wild living, this is the book for you! - Daniel (QBD)
A fantastic start to an engrossing saga, 'The Clan of The Cave Bear' introduces us to Ayla, a child who loses her family during the last Ice Age, and is raised by a tribe of neanderthal, having to conform to their way of life. Set against a beautiful prehistoric backdrop, the descriptions of the tools and general way of life of the neathderthal are absolutely fascinating! Truly an epic tale! - Mitchell (QBD)
