The short, stocky woman he knew bore little resemblance to the great hulk of a man standing there on the riverbank, but they were chipped from the same flint.


It had occurred to him when he first saw A. And then, picturing himself sitting astride one of the rather short, though sturdy, steppe horses like Whinney, he laughed out loud. I have a huge Love hate relationship with these books. There was way too much stupid going on between Ayla and Jondalar, and the results were nearly disastrous. How did early people live?

They sleep on opposite sides of the bed. Instead, Ayla and Jondalar begin a painful, stupid, nonsensical “falling out”. Number 61 out of on my all time book list.

I still enjoyed reading about how these people might have lived and survived in that time, but the long diatribes of the vegitation and uunters formations almost put me mamnoth sleep a few times and I found myself skimming over whole pages just to get past it.
