Overview

A stone age tribe faces extinction - a young hunter sets out to save his people.

Isolated by a changing climate, hemmed in by arid wasteland, a band of prehistoric humans faces extinction. Too many mouths to feed - the tribes have grown too big. They’ve hunted too fiercely, and the animals are gone. The waterholes are dry, the rains don’t come. Their world has changed, and they need a way out.

When the other hunters turn back from crossing the dry lands, Temfe must go on alone. But as he struggles to find a way across the desert, he will face enemies old and new, from cannibals to wild animals and traitors in his own tribe.

As they wait for news of Temfe, the tribe gathers around the camp fire, sharing stories, looking for answers. The choices they make will change their world forever.

    Past this point is family tepees.

    Past this point= family tepees. 1 horse, 8 cats, 2 dogs, and 10 people fit in one. Choose your tepee but remember that you can never change tepees. It may seem weird but all females, pet, and children of that tepee are possesions to the males and adults of that tepee, so choose who you want to be owned by.
