The third novel in Jean M. Auel's magnificent epic of life on the glacial continent of the last Ice Age, when two kinds of human beings, Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon, shared the earth. Leaving the valley of horses that has become her home, with Jondalar, the handsome man she has nursed back to health and come to love, Ayla embarks on a journey that will lead her to the Mamutoi: the Mammoth Hunters. But as she gradually settles into this new life amongst a people at first strange and disturbingly different, Ayla finds herself irresistibly drawn to the magnetic Ranec, their Master-carver. Ultimately she is compelled to make a fateful choice between the two men. The Mammoth Hunters is the third volume in the phenomenally successful Earth's Children series. The others are The Clan of the Cave Bear, The Valley of Horses and The Mains of Passage, all available in Coronet. Look out for the stunning new fifth volume, The Shelters of Stone, coming soon from Hodder & Stoughton.
