This is the second book about Ayla, a fictional character who could very well have existed a long time ago when human beings were taking root in this world. The author, as in the first book--The Clan of the Cave Bear-- extraordinarily shows us life as it was in those long-gone times.
"A powerful story . . . Auel is a highly imaginative writer. She humanizes prehistory and gives it immediacy and clarity." -- Chicago Sun Times
The sequel to "Clan of the Cave Bear" is every bit as good as the original. The research will amaze you and the storyline will draw you in!
Clan of the Cave Bear absolutely knocked me out. I was afraid I would be dissapointed by a follow-up novel. WOW! READ THIS ONE!
The Valley of Horses is the second in the great Earth's Children series. In The Valley of Horses, Jean Auel uses her thorough understanding of human nature and her powerful gift of storytelling to continue the saga of Ayla and to once again, with exquisite and accurate detail, re-create the world as it truly might have been.
