I’ve read the Earth’s Children series by Jean M. Auel more times than I can count. My Grandmother had them at her house when I was in 5th grade, and being completely and utterly into horses, I HAD to read The Valley of Horses. I read that one first, then Mammoth Hunters, then Clan of the Cave bear. I really did read all of them dozens of times. Then Plains of Passage came out, and that was a snoozefest. Shelters of Stone wasn’t much better. Now the sixth and last book (in the series) The Land of Painted Caves: A Novel (Earth's Children) is set to publish in March. I guess I’ll read it, just to see how it all ends.
Told you it was going to be something scary!
