Jean M. Auel’s enthralling Earth’s Children® series has become a literary phenomenon, beloved by readers around the world. In a brilliant novel as vividly authentic and entertaining as those that came before, Jean M. Auel returns us to the earliest days of humankind and to the captivating adventures of the courageous woman called Ayla. With her companion, Jondalar, Ayla sets out on her most dangerous and daring journey--away from the welcoming hearths of the Mammoth Hunters and into the unknown. Their odyssey spans a beautiful but sparsely populated and treacherous continent, the windswept grasslands of Ice Age Europe, casting the pair among strangers. Some will be intrigued by Ayla and Jondalar, with their many innovative skills, including the taming of wild horses and a wolf; others will avoid them, threatened by what they cannot understand; and some will threaten them. But Ayla, with no memory of her own people, and Jondalar, with a hunger to return to his, are impelled by their own deep drives to continue their trek across the spectacular heart of an unmapped world to find that place they can both call home.

5.0 The Plains of Passage (Earth's Children, Book Four)
This is one of my favourite series of books and I frequently find myself rereading them. The details and descriptions and the contrast between the Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon way of life brings the past to life and you can almost hear the fires crackling and the meat roasting over the flames.

still finding these books so very hard to put down, while remaining completely aware of their problems. this one probably has the most information in terms of what the land, flora, and fauna was like 25,000 years ago, although all of them are full of information that she transmits to the reader in ...

5.0 The Plains of Passage (Earth's Children, Book Four)
I'm infatuated with Ayla and Jundular, I love the how the book shows herbal medicine and how different clans and settlements have similar culture and how some practices have veered off into oblivion. It's hard for me to review a book in a series, specially when I'm waiting for the next turn of even...
