Publisher's Summary

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.


What the Critics Say

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

Amazing book!

I love all the Earths Children series...was hooked since the 1st page of Clan of the Cave Bear...but this has always been my favourite! I'll tell uou how good this book is...I must have read and listened to it over 30 times and I still have an emotional response to it. I laugh every time, shout at various characters and ball my eyes out!

- Amazon Customer "Hullo! I live in Devon by the sea and work from home as a bookbinder. I listen to my audible books as I work, reveling in the adventures!"

Well worth a listen.

Where does The Mammoth Hunters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

My favourite book is always the one I'm reading or listening to at the time (currently Plains of Passage).

What other book might you compare The Mammoth Hunters to, and why?

The only books I can compare this to are the other Earths Children books Jean M. Auel.

What does Rowena Cooper bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would really liked to have listened to this in one sitting but due to the length I couldn't. I wouldn't have this shortened though.
