Publisher's Summary

A timeless epic of the dawn of civilization.

In The Valley of Horses, Ayla, the unforgettable heroine of The Clan of the Cave Bear, sets out on her own odyssey of discovery away from the nurturing adoptive family and friends of the Clan. She is in search of others like herself and in search of love.

Sharing a hidden valley with a herd of steppe horses, Ayla finds a unique friendship with animals as vulnerable as herself and ingeniously discovers the complex skills needed to survive - skills no Clan member was ever able to master.

But none of her experiences prepares her for the emotional turmoil she feels when she rescues a young man - the first of the Others she has seen - from almost certain death.

Torn between her desire for human companionship and her fear of the unknown Others, she struggles against her deep attraction to the handsome Jondalar. It is Jondalar who teaches her the meaning of true friendship and love.

    "Love this series"

    I cannot express how much I love the earth children series of books. book one is great. Book two is even better. I like book 3 also but book for I like more book 5 love it and book 6 was a very interesting book because it told a part of history that I never knew about. if you choose to read the series you will learn so much about Europe. Happy reading

    "Among the most delightful tales of resilience and perseverance!"

    Jean M. Auel is a brilliant scholar as well as a master craftsman writer. Her assiduous reseaech, which included not only travel and intensive study, but also experience based survival techniques, made possible her characters, to navigate their ancient landscapes. Although I have listened to each of the six books in Auel's Earth Children series innumerable times, I invariably glean new insights as well as abundant joy through each "read".

    "Loved these books"

    Great story, lots of detail that might be too much if reading, but for listening it was a nice world to get lost in.
    I didn't mind the narrator, got use to her voice and the complaints of the other reviewers are valid but it doesn't take away from the book.
    Recommendation!

    "Valley of Horses"
    Where does The Valley of Horses rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is not too bad, tho the narrator was hard at times to hear at times. she tried moving her voice when using different characters. But was good


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ayla, she is a strong woman.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Jondalar sees the baby horse being born


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    How Jondalar lost his brother,


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all but the last of this series, one of the best books wrote! have read them many times. my first ebook I have ever listened to.

    "Great listen"

    Great listen but the pacing was sometimes frustrating. Several times I found myself having to go back and listen to a part again because the abrupt change to the subject.
