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.

Listen to more in the Earth's Children series.

    Story
    "Awful"

    The narrator did a great job, made the voices was easy to understand. all around great.

    the story started out good. and then about half way it, it becomes cave man porn essentially, like really really bad porn. and then the book ends. it's ruined the whole series for me.

    Story
    "Auel paints vivid pictures with her words."

    I found these books the first time more than 30 years ago. I love the stories as much today as then. Rereading them is like visiting with old friends. There are times I can feel the wind off the steppes and the crashing of the river during the storms. I also learned so much about survival. Long live Ayla!

    "Excellent except"

    Seems like a lot of sexual filler toward the end. I can see some, but I found it a bit excessive.

    "This book was really exciting and engaging"

    After listening to all the suffering experienced by Ayla it was really moving to have her finally find humans like her and in such an interesting, heartwarming tale, and to finally get away from all the oppression and hardship she had endured. I couldn't put this down after the first half.

    Story
    "Much More Smutty than Clan of the Cave Bear"

    While continuing on with this story and learning more about the people from that time period was very interesting, this one became much much more smutty. It feels much less educational than the first book in this series, and more like a romance novel-which may be what it was meant to be all along. Part of me wants to continue the story, following along with Ayla and seeing different cultures, but after checking out reviews of the upcoming books I may decide not to continue as they just seem to turn into caveman porn.

    "My All Time Favorite Book"

    I seriously don't remember how many times I have read and listened to this book. It is my all time favorite. And I'm glad to have it in a more portable way of listening to it than my old cassettes! LOL I LOVE Ayla's and Jondalar's stories, both individually and especially once they finally meet. And Sandra Burr does a masterful job bringing these characters to life.

    Story
    "Foreplay, foreplay, foreplay"

    Disappointing sequel. A couple chapters of new character development, a couple reminiscent of the first book's pretend inventions, then lots of teen sexual awkwardness. I ended up skipping through parts of the last chapters.

    "too much foreshadowing"

    a few too many cliches and foreshadowing for me made the story drag too much. could have done with less "romance"
