First in a two-part series about life in prehistoric times. Very accurate, historically and geographically. The author is a respected anthropologist and not only knows her field, but obviously loves it.
The story is told from an interesting, alternating double perspective - a young, living woman named Yanan, and Yanan the spirit.
A great read and, in my opinion, every bit as good as Clan of the Cave Bear.
If you love books such as The Clan of the Cave Bear series---you will enjoy this one.
I lived and breathed this book...Yanan is fascinating,completely riviting and Magnificent.A novel of ice-age times a story of human
struggles to stay alive...this book takes you on a journey you will never forget.
Yanan is a girl born 20,000 years ago, and this story is Yanan's story of her jurney and survival in a magnificent world before the ice melt.
