They also have some kind of mystical abilities to access and share the memories of their ancestors stored in their own minds. Throughout the icy winter she shelters with the Mamutoi, while Jondalar broods over his disappointment. The concept is interesting, especially in light of recent archaeological evidence suggesting that Neandertals and Cro-Magnons anatomically modern humans may have interbred. While the characters have forgotten more about the natural world than you or I will ever know, their weakness is a shortened life span; Ayla reaches womanhood and achieves status as Woman Who Hunts by age 10.

Not only is Ayla strong, beautiful though she considers herself ugly and believes that nobody could ever love her and talented, she's also a virtual genius.

It's been a long, hot summer.
The men stared at the cave bear's skull glowing whitely in the flickering light of the torches. Aš šiaip nesu didelis istorijos mėgėjas, bet bent jau iš laifstailo ir kultūros prizmių žiūrint man įdomūs beveik visi istoriniai periodai, neišskiriant ir ankstyvojo akmens amžiaus, kurio metu ir vystosi siužetas.
