The authors are professional archaeologists, so it's historically correct, but they are great stories and the characters are vivid.

I found this to be a bit over the top in the weaving of the spiritual and the historical. I'd have preferred less conjecture, more fact based story telling. It struck me as a dawn-of-modern-man soap opera. But it was still fun. I don't think I'll venture on to the rest of the books though.

The Gears made a wonderful series of books. "The People of the ..." If you are interested in Indian heritage, or mythology, or just enjoy a bit of romance thrown into your historical adventure then this book is for you. Its classic good versus evil and sets up the mythology of the rest of the series.

Gears' prehistoric novels are all astounding reads - better than Auel's. Although this does not rival People of the Lakes, it is still a super read.

All the books in this series are an excellent read, good story and lots of anthropological information. Each book stands alone but also continues a good storyline.

I recently learned about this series and hoped to find something really engrossing but this is so badly written I found it unreadable.
