Summary:

Once again Jean M. Auel opens the door of a time long past to reveal an age of wonder and danger at the dawn of the modern human race. Riding Whinney with Jondalar, the man she loves, and followed by the mare's colt, Ayla ventures into the land of the Mamutoi - the Mammoth Hunters. She has finally found the Others she has been seeking. Though Ayla must learn their different customs and language, she is adopted because of her remarkable hunting ability, singular healing skills, and uncanny fire-making technique. She finds women friends and painful memories of the Clan she left behind, and meets Ranec, the dark-skinned, magnetic master carver of ivory, whom she cannot refuse - inciting Jondalar to a fierce jealousy that he tries to control by avoiding her. Throughout the icy winter the tension mounts, but warming weather will bring the great mammoth hunt and the mating rituals of the Summer Meeting, when Ayla must choose to remain with Ranec and the Mamutoi, or to follow Jondalar on a long journey into an unknown future. Third in the acclaimed Earth's Children® series

    Second time I have read this book. I'm a fan of prehistoric fiction. I have yet to find another prehistoric fiction that comes close to Jean Auel's books. Lots of environmental details. The only reason I did not give 5 stars are the never ending 'streamy'. Once or twice OK. But not in details in every chapter. Highly recommend that one has read the first 2 books of the series before reading the Mammouth Hunters.

    I love this series!

  • Alice Davis

    This is a great book and am happy with the app so far. I takes me forever to read a book if I get the time. This app lets me enjoy my favorite stories still.

  • Ayla Ashburn

    I love this series! I am named after this series!

  • TRISH

    This book continues the story and has great character development and story line, although it gets tedious at times.

  • Jenni Lowe

    Always loved Jean Auel, been reading her since I was 14.

  • Gabi

    I was drawn in from the 1st line and I couldn't stop until I was finished, which took a while since this is a very long book. This book is much better to listen to, than to read it. At times I got so mad a the main characters that I wished I could climb into the CD player and beat their heads together. The story gripped me totally.

  • Beverly Edgmon

    I am eager to read the next one! Auel has incorporated history and I feel that I am a part of the story. My heart was wanting to jump in and help Ayla with communication. What a story for us all. Not only was it worth the listen, but in the end I have gleaned more about the history of civilizations and witnessed their differences and simularities. The narrator is awesome.

  • Varin Acevedo

    Who knew cavemen could be so witty and urbane? Really, I enjoy the whole series and appreciate all the research Auel has done. It is a fun story to drive with. My only complaint would be the icky love scenes which follow the romance novel formula, but it is nothing that a few clicks of the fast forward button can't fix.
