For supposed ice age based on a hunting people, the background details are sketchy at best. While Jean M Auel gets a bit carried away with the background details at times, this series lacks all the requisite background to frame the series into n ancient past. It could just as easily have been 200 years ago as 9,000 years. The narration continues in such a monotonous voice that it is a terrific cure for insomnia. At least all the "taking of women" avoids graphic details.
