I began reading this series in middle school and I have always been impressed with the amount of research and detail that Jean Auel has put into the series.

Book six...just recently released. Decades after the first three made their appearance in the 1980s. It's the finale. SO excited to read!

I haven't read these in 30 years. Jean Auel's level of detail is incredible as she traces the life of a prehistoric medicine woman. The human struggle and ultimate love story completely engaging.  I must read these again this year!

The second book....the entire series is about pre-historic times basically. A Cro-Magnon girl is the main character. Raised by Neanderthals...the series is the story of her life and struggles trying to find where she fits in.
