The story of an ordinary (if rather strong and feisty) young woman living sometime during the last ice age, as related by her after she has died and become a guardian spirit. Despite the supernatural element, which works surprisingly well, the story is mostly concerned with very ordinary things: births, deaths, the little scandals and quarrels of small groups of people living in close quarters, and the never-ending search for food. But it's consistently interesting and very readable, partly because it's just plain fascinating to try to imagine what kind of lives our ancestors might have led twenty thousand years ago, and partly because the characters feel so believable and so recognizably human.The cover blurb declares that it's "for everyone who loved The Clan of the Cave Bear!" It's been a long, long time since I read that one, but I'm willing to venture the opinion that this book is the better of the two. It's certainly better than The Valley of Horses, which is the point where I gave up on Auel.

Wow this is absolutely Brilliant material. I dont agree with the ways of the people in the book they took animal forms etc. But its just fiction but the way this lady writes is really amazing. Not one sentence was boring and you can see someone who really loves and knows animals.Good writing just a culture I dont agree with. I suppose it was becuase they were primitive and had not yet found Salvation.

Could not put this book down. It was amazing. Reminded me a lot of "The Clan of the Cave Bear" series. If you liked those books, you will love this one. In some ways, this one was almost better. The story pulls you in from the opening pages. Brought out every possible emotion from me.
