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.

"Shiningly intense...Sheere storytelling skill holds the reader in a powerful spell." --Publishers Weekly

"Cruelly cast out by the ancient Clan that adopted her as a child, Ayla now travels alone in a land of glacial cold and terrifying beasts. She is searching for the Others, a race as tall, blond, and blue eyed as she. But Ayla finds only a hidden valley, where a herd of hardy steppe horses roams. Here, she is granted a unique kinship with animals, enabling her to learn the secrets of fire and raw survival--but still, her need for human companionship and love remains unfulfilled. Then fate brings her a stranger, handsome Jondalar, and Ayla is torn between fear and hope--and carried to an awakening of desire that would shape the future of mankind.
