Mass market (rack) paperback. Glued binding. 723 p. Audience: General/trade. Historical Book 3 in the Earth's Children Series. The continuing epic of Ayla. Now with her devoted Jondalar, Ayla boldly sets forth into the land of the Mamutoi-the Mammoth Hunters, the Others she has been seeking. Though Ayla must learn their strange customs and language, it is because of her uncanny hunting and healing skills that she is adopted into the Mammoth hearth. Here Ayla finds her first women friends, and painful memories of the Clan she left behind. Here, too, is Ranec, the dark-skinned, magnetic master carver of ivory tusks to whom Ayla is irresistibly drawn-setting Jondalar on fire with jealousy. Throughout the icy winter, Ayla is torn between her two men. But soon will come the great spring mammoth hunt, when Ayla must choose her mate and her destiny-to remain in the Hearth with Ranec, or to follow Jondalar into a faroff place and an unknown future.
