Un devastante terremoto ha lasciato la giovane Ayla sola, ferita e sperduta in una terra selvaggia e popolata da animali ostili. Raccolta e cresciuta dal Clan dell'Orso delle Caverne, ben presto Ayla si distingue per la sua diversità: è alta, bionda, con gli occhi azzurri e, soprattutto, è intelligente. Lo scontro con i paurosi retrogradi Testapiatta del Clan è inevitabile. Ma in Ayla gli altri riconoscono la donna prescelta dal destino, l'eroina che li guiderà nella lotta per la sopravvivenza, perché nel suo sangue scorre il futuro dell'umanità.

Ms Auel, there are some things I’d like to talk to you about. Be warned I’m quite angry because I keep reading your books for some bizarre reason and I cringe and tear my hair out in despair. See, you had a good story there – a little Cro-Magnon orphan girl found and raised by Neanderthals. I didn’t Leggi tutto
The thing that strikes me most about her work is that every time there's a new discovery about how paleolithic people lived, it goes along with her stories. Things they said were silly back when she wrote it (Neanderthals with instruments, Neanderthals living with homo sapiens sapiens, and the like) Leggi tutto
Omg!! This book was awesome!! Yes, there were some parts but there always seem to have those in books I read! I still loved it! Happy Reading! Mel 🖤🐶🐺🐾
I once read an article from National Geographic in which the author had spent some time living with a Stone Age tribe in Africa. The people were a studied anachronism, living in modern times, but within a carefully maintained atavistic society of hunting and gathering. Most endearing of this study w Leggi tutto

I could easily sit between a red-faced evolutionist and a screaming creationist, both arguing around me, and quite contentedly finish any book I was reading. I'm no Louis Leakey, people. I'm no Tammy Faye Baker, either. I am, in fact, an anthropological airhead , and arguing with me about creationism Leggi tutto

Note, March 25, 2014: I edited this review slightly just now, to delete one accidental dittography. Hmmm, I thought I'd proofread this.... :-) Auel's Earth's Children series (this opening volume was followed by, so far, four sequels) garners mixed --and mostly negative-- reviews here on Goodreads.

I *really* wanted to dig this book. I have a burgeoning obsession with prehistory, evolution, and the antecedents of man, and a tale of Cro Magnons and Neanderthals is exactly what I'd love to read. Sadly, this book does not contain that tale. Instead, it's a goopy mess of inane metaphysics, prurience Leggi tutto
Circa 30,000 years ago in the lands surrounding the broad Black Sea , in future Europe, a cataclysmic event occurred, not very unusual there, but still to the superstitious Ice Age people , a devastating occurrence. A family of Cro -Magnons, the first modern humans, our direct ancestors, were wiped
