Leaving the valley of horses with Jondalar, the handsome man she has nursed back to health and come to love, Ayla embarks on a journey that will lead her to the Mamutoi; the Mammoth Hunters. But as she settles into this new life among a people at first strange and disturbingly different, Ayla finds herself irresistibly drawn to Ranec, their master-carver. Ultimately, she is compelled to make a fateful choice between the two men.
Jean Auel's imaginative reconstruction of pre-historic life, rich in detail of language, culture, myth, and ritual, has become a set text in schools and colleges around the world.

"The authenticity of background detail, the lilting prose rhythms, and the appealing conceptual audacity continue to work their spell." ( Publishers Weekly)

Timeless classic of a lost time.

Passion, empathy and love set in a time long gone. This love story is brought to life so brilliantly that I feel I can step into the world created, feel the heat of the Sun, the chill of the Glaciers and experience the sights, sounds and smells of the landscape. I have loved this series of books since I began with Clan of the Cave Bear in my late teens. Jean M Auel has created a vision of a time long gone who's messages are still relevant today if you only take the time to look. The need to co operate, work together, show and indeed Be tolerant. Be respectful of the world and it's gifts and never take anything for granted. This book shows life is a Gift and should be embraced. Please make time to lose yourself in this incredible series as you may well find yourself along the way.

A Classic novel of the continuing life of Ayla, which must be continued with the great journey home to the west.

Defiantly not the best in the series....

I struggled to finish this book. By far a big disappointing compared to the first two books, which were pretty good, especially the first. But I've grown attached to characters and narritor so I still bought the 4th book. Hope it's better
