Summary

A New York Times bestseller

A BookPage Top Pick for Binge-Reading a Series

This novel of awesome beauty and power is a moving saga about people, relationships, and the boundaries of love.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Through Jean M. Auel’s magnificent storytelling we are taken back to the dawn of modern humans, and with a girl named Ayla we are swept up in the harsh and beautiful Ice Age world they shared with the ones who called themselves The Clan of the Cave Bear.

A natural disaster leaves the young girl wandering alone in an unfamiliar and dangerous land until she is found by a woman of the Clan, people very different from her own kind. To them, blond, blue-eyed Ayla looks peculiar and ugly—she is one of the Others, those who have moved into their ancient homeland; but Iza cannot leave the girl to die and takes her with them. Iza and Creb, the old Mog-ur, grow to love her, and as Ayla learns the ways of the Clan and Iza’s way of healing, most come to accept her. But the brutal and proud youth who is destined to become their next leader sees her differences as a threat to his authority. He develops a deep and abiding hatred for the strange girl of the Others who lives in their midst, and is determined to get his revenge.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Imaginative, exciting.” New York Times Book Review
“Jean Auel has performed a minor miracle.” San Francisco Chronicle
“As Auel’s six-book Earth’s Children series unfolded over three decades, it developed a devoted, rapt fan base to equal George R.R. Martin’s. Set in prehistoric Europe and centered on an outsider Cro-Magnon woman who joins a tribe of Neanderthals, this epic historical tale creates a stunning, well-researched portrait of an Ice Age world that’s both brutal and beautiful.” BookPage
