A literary phenomenon, Jean M. Auel's prehistoric odyssey is one of the best-loved sagas of our time. Employing meticulous research and the consummate artistry of a master storyteller, Auel paints a vivid panorama of the dawn of modern humans. Through Ayla, an orphaned girl who grows into a beautiful and courageous young woman, we are swept up in the harsh and beautiful Ice Age world, home to the Clan of the Cave Bear. Now, for the first time, all six novels in the Earth's Children series are available in one convenient eBook bundle:

THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR
THE VALLEY OF HORSES
THE MAMMOTH HUNTERS
THE PLAINS OF PASSAGE
THE SHELTERS OF STONE
THE LAND OF PAINTED CAVES

A natural disaster leaves a 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 the Clan's next leader sees Ayla's 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.

Praise for the Earth's Children series

"Auel is a highly imaginative writer. She humanizes prehistory and gives it immediacy and clarity." - The New York Times Book Review

"Storytelling in the grand tradition . . . From the violent panorama of spring on the steppes to musicians jamming on a mammoth-bone marimba, Auel's books are a stunning example of world building. They join the short list of books, like James Clavell's Shogun and Frank Herbert's Dune, that depict exotic societies so vividly that readers almost regard them as 'survival manuals.' " - Vogue

"Jean Auel has established herself as one of our premier storytellers. . . . Her narrative skill is supreme." - Chicago Tribune

"Pure entertainment at its sublime, wholly exhilarating best." - Los Angeles Times

"Readers who fell in love with little Ayla will no doubt revel in her prehistoric womanhood." - People

"Lively and interesting, enhanced greatly by the vividly colored backdrop of early humanity . . . Auel is a prodigious researcher." - The Washington Post Book World

"Among modern epic spinners, Auel has few peers. . . . She deftly creates a whole world, giving a sense of the origins of class, ethnic, and cultural differences that alternately divide and fascinate us today." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
