I got hooked with Judith Tarr's Epona series cause I'm a horse lover and finally read Auel's books this spring and now I've moved on to Joan Wolf. What are your favorites?

I'm going to add Prehistoric to our pseudo-official list of Historical Fiction tags.

A little out date, but what the hey.

And speaking of Linda Lay Shuler, she was supposed to be writing another book to finish of the series. Does anyone know what happened to that?

I wish Auel would finish her series. i think there is supposed to be one more. I can't imagine how long it takes her to research all the details plus she's been sick. Where do they find the energy?

I'm not sure if this is considered pre-historic, but I'm currently reading Morgan Llywelyn's "The Horse Goddess"

It is about the ancient Celtic peoples....and it also has a heroine named Epona.   I'm enjoying it so far. You might like it too.

Beverly - As I just learned several years ago, Pre-Historic means "before recorded history".  So I do believe that books set among the ancient Celts qualify.
