Product description

Leave 21st century London and go back to Ice Age Europe. Follow Ayla, a Cro-Magnon child who loses her parents in an earthquake and is adopted by a tribe of Neanderthal, the Clan. See how the Clan's wary suspicion is gradually transformed into acceptance of this girl, so different from them, under the guidance of its medicine woman Iza and its wise holy man Creb. Immerse yourself in a world dictated by the demands of survival in a hostile environment, and be swept away in an epic tale of love, identity and struggle.

By R.E.Franks 14 Jun 2011 5

This book is absolutely amazing, I know that the new book, Land of Painted Caves is not exactly the best and that put me off reading the clan of the cave bear because I thought that if one was bad, the rest were, but then I got it out from the library and gave it a try and it was amazing, then I started The Valley of Horses and my father stole it and read it. Out of everything, I give this book five stars. Once anybody reads this for the first time, they'll know it's the start of something special. Over all, I loved it.

Review quote

Beautiful, exciting, imaginative New York Times A major bestseller ... a remarkable work of imagination Daily Express It's nice to rediscover an old classic that, upon reading 30 years after it was first published, still has appeal ... Auel's simple but engaging storytelling skill is still a joy. Sunday Mail,Brisbane
