Overview

Thrilling story of a powerful sorcerer who was banished from his tribe as a boy and whose magical painting skills save his people. The images found on the walls of prehistoric caves in Lascaux, France, have long been considered to be the work of the earliest magicians—men whose talents at depicting the world around them gave them special powers over the beasts and the elements. From these, man's earliest and possibly finest paintings, Joseph Bato has drawn the story of Ao'h, a young boy of the Stone Age. Banished from his tribe, he lives alone in a cave, discovering and making tools, painting, barely surviving. After a difficult and solitary winter, he is discovered by three warriors from a neighboring tribe and abducted by them, to be turned over as an apprentice to the most powerful man in their tribe, the Sorcerer. Ao'h shows a special talent for painting; his depictions of beasts almost never fail to bring about a successful hunt. Before long his power surpasses even that of the old Sorcerer himself. Respected and feared alike, he soon finds that his magical powers have put his very life in danger.
