Auel’s magnificent storytelling we are taken back to the dawn of modern humans, and with a cavfrnario 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 natur This novel of awesome beauty and power is a moving saga about people, relationships, and the boundaries of love.

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.

Note, March 25, I edited this review slightly just now, to delete one accidental dittography. Hmmm, I thought I’d proofread this Though none of them have reviewed it, a dozen of my Goodreads friends have given it ratings, ranging from one star to five. Obviously, my own reaction falls at the favorable end of the spectrum. Ayla, of Note, March 25, Ayla, of course, is a Cro-Magnon i. For a writer of historical fiction, a prehistoric setting poses a challenge; technically, the genre embraces any fiction set in the past, but its authors usually depend heavily on written records for events and background material, and for the Ice Age, no such records exist.

To her credit, Auel was the first writer in the genre to attempt it on a large scale though Jack London and William Golding each wrote single novels set in prehistoryand to popularize it sufficiently to create a market niche and a subgenre tradition that other writers have begun to develop. In place of written records, she immersed herself in the exhaustive study of every known aspect of the physical evidence from the period, and all of the various scholarly interpretations of it.


Her reconstruction of both Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal natural history, society and culture is of course speculative; but it is based meticulously on this research. Even the more controversial features of her Neanderthals –their “Memories,” a genetically-transmitted racial memory of past experiences, and their difficulty with verbal speech and consequent preference for sign language — have grounds in known Neanderthal physiology, such as their hyper-developed back brains, which control memory.

Although Auel is an evolutionist, she recognizes Neanderthals as “a branch of humanity” and depicts them as fully human, not as the “ape-men” who figure in London’s Before Adam or Conan Doyle’s The Lost World –a point in her favor. A weakness of Auel’s writing is the converse of her strong research: She also has a penchant for explicitly detailed sex, which in my estimation is not a plus. Here, however, neither of these flaws are as marked as they are in the later books the latter because the plot here affords little occasion for it –Ayla doesn’t yet have a love interest, though that gets remedied later on.

First and foremost, she has a capacity to create fully alive, three-dimensional characters whom the reader can relate to positively or negatively just like real people –Iza, Creb, Brun, Broud, even several of the minor characters; and above all Ayla herself, as we watch her grow from a scared, traumatized child into a strong, highly competent and intelligent woman.

Indeed, she’s much too strong, competent and intelligent for some of the Clan to accept in a woman and judging from critical and reader reactions, some moderns aren’t very cool with it either!

Gender roles are the most obvious; against the backdrop of the male- dominated Clan, Ayla makes a lived-out case for a genuine feminism of the equalitarian rather than male-bashing sort that argues for social roles based on demonstrated ability and interests, not gender. But the book also addresses issues of interracial and cross-cultural relations, and the conflict between inflexible tradition and cultural inertia, represented by the change-resistant Clan “It’s never been done before!

Also, Ayla’s fight to save the life of her infant son conceived in a rape provides a powerful pro-life message –though that may well have been unintended on Auel’s part.

The series was one that I read out loud to my cwvernario it also became one of her all-time favorites, and she re-reads it periodically on her own! View all 22 comments. This book and the series that follows is endearing, troublesome, and whole-heartedly compassionate. This is the book my grandmother read to me as a little girl during the middle of a tornado, while we waited out the storm by candlelight. This is the book that started me reading I learned that I can liro my quiet time, and apparently I love stories on the ancient human race The ways of survival, ways of development, natural medicine, culture and anthropology.

El Clan del Oso Cavernario

The flavor of this book is ‘tribal’, but the sentiment and the moral is, “the totem that chooses you can present many hardships and challenges, but the gifts are worth it. View all 6 comments. WELL It was worth the wait! This is the story of a young child called Ayla who is born over 35, years ago during Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon times.

Ayla is a Cro-Magnon who is adopted by a group of Neanderthal people when they find her stranded and abandoned after heavy snowfall and a great Earthquake. Ayla has managed to get to a Cave where she was chased by but evaded a You know what Ayla has managed to get to a Cave where she was chased by but evaded a Cave Lion. As this young girl has been marked by a Cave Lion and survived, they deem it acceptable even positive to take her along with them.


Ayla is taken with the Clan as they call themselves to a new cave far from the place where the Quake happened and she lost her own people. At first, the others in the Clan are afraid of her blue eyes and the water she produces when she’s sad, but as the time and later the years go by she becomes integrated into their small community. This is the story of her culture clashing and melding with theirs.

It’s what happens when two entirely different races and culture meet in the form of one young girl, and it’s the story of how Ayla defied everything they could ever have anticipated for her.

What I truly loved about this story was the poise and clarity that Auel gives these characters. There’s evidently a lot of reserach that went into these characters and they do feel like highly plausible beings who may once have walked our very same Earth. At many points in the story Auel points out various problems with anatomy, struggles with ideas, and challenges of build that both the Clan and Ayla have respectively. It made me really start to think how things that seem so basic and simple and easy to us today are the products of years and ages of evolution and development from beings much like these.

Jones though maybe this is more interms of setting than prose and even Robin Hobb to some extent. I think all of these authors share something about the quality and unique authenticity of their writings, and it just registers with me really well. I loved the character of Ayla right from the start, probably becuase she is much more like me and has many of the traits that will no doubt develop into humanity as we know it today.

Ayla is resourceful and filled with a desire to develop and learn and be excited by the world, something the Clan find hard to comprehend let alone to emanate. Of course the magic described by Auel is certainly imagined more than researched, but there may well be grains of the truth scattered in.

The idea of gods and Totem animals as guiding factors for life certainly seem plausible as belief systems for societies like this one, and even the rituals and strange occurrences could relate to magic. I really enjoyed the creativity and ingenuity Auel bought to the Clan and their magic, and I feel like it worked really well as a vital part of the story and culture for this world.

Honestly, I could go on for quite some time with all the things I completely loved about this book but I think I’ll finish by saying it’s great and you should read it for yourself. I am so glad that there are quite a few more in the series as I have a feeling I am going to love the rest too, and I can’t wait to read them.

lbiro This was a fantastic book. I read it in 7th grade, and was absolutely obsessed with it which is nothing less than stunning, because at that age most books that lacked dragons weren’t worth my time In a way its perfect for around that age, because its all kso struggling for acceptance and trying to learn the social norms of a society. But really, everybody has dealt with those issues, and will be able to empathize with the characters.

And the setting is so unique, the writing so vibrant, This was a fantastic book. And the setting is so unique, the writing so vibrant, that I imagine most people will find themselves engaged. The rest of the series isn’t nearly as good. Valley of the Horses is fun but lacking the depth. I stopped reading them after the third cavernarioo in the series.
