Reindeer Moon - Reindeer Moon, Bk 1 Author:Elizabeth Marshall Thomas "My name is Yanan and my story begins where it will end..." — She was born over twenty thousand years ago, in a lodge on the ice-swept tundra. In a land where death was always near. Her people were hunters, living in kinship with the tigers and the wolves, struggling through the long winters when meat and wood were scarce... rejoi... more »cing in the brief, glorious summers. And in this land of great and terrible beauty, Yanan survived to womanhood -- passionate and brave, richly sensuous and dangerously proud. From the perils of the hunt to the timeless wonders of love and marriage, birth and death, Yanan's life was a grand and thrilling adventure in a harsh, magnificent world...
Enter her world.. Live her adventure. You will never forget the journey.« less
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.
