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.

    "Smutty Romance Novel - about cavemen"

    Not at all like the first book in the series. This is constantly talking about some guy's member. Really not worth buying. Maybe I'm the only idiot who didn't get this book was a caveman romance novel, but I couldn't finish reading it.

    "my favorite of the series"

    the story is amazing, the details given a proof of the research the author conducted prior to writing these books. the Narain was fine but would be so much better if a male could have read the a masculine lines.

    "Trying to decide if I want to go on...."

    I enjoyed this story a little more than the first book. I am still not fond of the narrator. I am curious what will happen next, so maybe on to book three.

    Story
    "Classic! Book2 of Earth's Children & my Fave"

    This is a classic series. Book 2 is my personal fave. Love all the descriptions of primitive plant use, cooking techniques, hunting techniques, survival techniques,etc., & there's interesting characters & storyline. Also *LOVE* Auel's reminder that the creation deity was female before men made their power grab over religion. Burr's narration is decent.

    Story
    "Living simple"

    Makes me wish I had been alive in that era. Brings a whole new meaning to survival of the fittest.
    Jean's earliest books in the series are the best, in my opinion. Her research is incredible, and so spot on.
    Since reading all her books, I've tried using the Atlatl spear thrower and the sling. Although both weapons are difficult to learn and use, it gave me even greater appreciation of the efforts and skills developed by our ancestors.
    I recommend all of her books, both for the survival knowledge they contain, and for the glimpse of our past that they describe so vividly and romantically.
