Review Text

A plucky prehistoric lad survives peril after peril and finds a fond new family. Young Tragg, left behind by his nomadic band because of his injured leg, unaccountably comes upon his uncle's magic bracelet; determinedly propels himself to salubrious warm springs; and, meeting up with a band led by evil, hostile Odak, eventually makes a place for himself in the bosom of Odak's brother's family - which, after that good man dies, Tragg will presumably lead away from Odak's dominion. One could keep on synopsizing this tale, adding more particulars each time, but it would still boil down to a routine melodrama (there's even a love-interest) with some primeval embellishments. Steele is better remembered by many, many other books. (Kirkus Reviews)
