Can anyone suggest some good "prehistory" novels?? Every now and then I CRAVE one. I have read all the earths children series (can't wait for book 6) as well as most of Linda Lay Shuler,  Kathleen ONeal Gear, and a book called Almost Adam.

William Sarabande has a great series that starts with Beyond the Sea of Ice. I read these many years ago and really liked them.

Here are a few more authors that write this type book:

  • Patricia Rowe
  • Charlotte Prentiss
  • Margaret Allan
  • Rosanne Bittner
  • John R. Dann
  • Sue Harrison

I got these authors from Amazon by doing a "Prehistoric Novel" Listmania search. You might want to try it because there were quite a few more that I didn't list.

I recently got all of the Wlliam Sarabande books and I'm really curious to see what they are like. I haven't read any Prehistoric novels before and thought it might make a nice change for me. I'm glad to hear that someone here enjoyed them!

Picture Maker and Dream Weaver by Penina Keen Spinka were very good as well .

WOW, thanks for all the great suggestions. I can't wait to "dig" into these authors, but I had to laugh when I did a quick search of some and Margaret Allen brought up such titles as, "Jo Jo in Outer Space", "Cat and Dog at the Circus" and, "Barney Bear's Party".

LOL! That would be because I spelled Allan wrong! Ooops....  Margaret Allan really does write prehistoric novels, I promise. ;-)

I think I'll go edit that post now....
