Clan of the Cave Bear is the first novel in Jean M. Auel's magnificent best-selling epic of life 35,000 years ago. Leave the 21st century 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.
"Beautiful, exciting, imaginative." (New York Times)

very good narrator for a familiar tale
i read these books when I was a teenager and was looking forward to hearing them again. There is a version that I found online but the narrator was terrible! Reading like she was reading a recipe book. This narrator was very good and I enjoyed the story just as much the second time round.
An ancient journey!
A great story! Jean M. Auel takes you on a journey through a time we can not walk through on our own! Great experience!
