Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read
Through Jean M. Auel’s magnificent storytelling we are
taken back to the dawn of modern humans, and with a girl named Ayla we are swept
up in the harsh and beautiful Ice Age world they shared with the ones who called
themselves the Clan of the Cave Bear.
A natural disaster leaves the young girl
wandering alone in an unfamiliar and dangerous land until she is found by a woman
of the Clan, people very different from her own kind. To them, blond, blue-eyed
Ayla looks peculiar and ugly-she is one of the Others, those who have moved into
their ancient homeland; but Iza cannot leave the girl to die and takes her with them.
Iza and Creb, the old Mog-ur, grow to love her, and as Ayla learns the ways of the
Clan and Iza’s way of healing, most come to accept her. But the brutal and proud
youth who is destined to become their next leader sees her differences as a threat
to his authority. He develops a deep and abiding hatred for the strange girl of
the Others who lives in their midst, and is determined to get his revenge.
