Vivid Journey to Prehistory Dec 10, 2008
Upon reading the first chapter, I fell in love with the descriptions of the land, animals, and the characters of this book. I was hooked from the beginning and destined to buy not only all 5 books in series, but have read and reread them as well.
Jean Auel, allows you to see the shortcomings of the moral fiber of humankind as well as the strengths. She has researched and allowed the reader to imagine the beginnings of the uses of many of the things we take for granted as always being there. She also allows us to experience the fear and appreciate the courage of the hearty People called "Clan" as Ayla a human child learns to live among them. Great read! But buyer beware, you will find this one hard to put down,
