#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In this, the extraordinary conclusion of the ice-age epic series, Earth’s Children(R), Ayla, Jondalar, and their infant daughter, Jonayla, are living with the Zelandonii in the Ninth Cave. Ayla has been chosen as an acolyte to a spiritual leader and begins arduous training tasks.

Whatever obstacles she faces, Ayla finds inventive ways to lessen the difficulties of daily life, searching for wild edibles to make meals and experimenting with techniques to ease the long journeys the Zelandonii must take while honing her skills as a healer and a leader. And there are the Sacred Caves that Ayla’s mentor takes her to see. They are filled with remarkable paintings of mammoths, lions, and bears, and their mystical aura at times overwhelms Ayla.

But all the time Ayla has spent in training rituals has caused Jondalar to drift away from her. The rituals themselves bring her close to death, but through them Ayla gains A Gift of Knowledge so important that it will change her world.

Sixth in the acclaimed Earth’s Children(R) series

Description

The highly anticipated sixth book of Jean Auel’s Earth’s Children® series, The Land of Painted Caves, is the culmination fans have been waiting for. Continuing the story of Ayla and Jondalar. Auel combines her brilliant narrative skills and appealing characters with a remarkable re-creation of the way life was lived more than 25,000 years ago.

The Land of Painted Caves by Jean M. AuelIn 1977, at the age of forty and on the cusp of changing jobs, Jean M. Auel was inspired by the idea of writing a story—a short story. She envisioned a young woman from mankind’s earliest history, who was the archetypal stranger, living with people who are physically and psychologically different. Jean Auel began to write, until she realized something important: She had no idea what the world she wanted to write about was like. She began to research. She named her heroine Ayla (pronounced with a long “A”).  Jean Auel’s short story grew into an outline for a novel, and the outline grew into a plan for six epic novels. “I told my husband I had a plan for six books,” she laughs, “and he replied I hadn’t even written one!”

Three decades in the telling. The Land of Painted Caves is an exquisite achievement by one of the world’s most beloved authors.
