The band of travelers walked along the path between the clear sparkling water of Grass River and the black-streaked white limestone cliff, following the trail that paralleled the right bank. They went single file around the bend where the stone wall jutted out closer to the water's edge. Ahead a smaller path split off at an angle toward the crossing place, where the flowing water spread out and became shallower. bubbling around exposed rock.
This is the first paragraph of the 6th in the series of the Earth's Children by Jean M. Auel. I fell in love with Ayla in Clan of the Cave Bear back in the late 1980s. Jean Auel tells an amazing story of a world none of us know except through her extensively researched writing. Have you read Earth's Children? Would you read on?
I wanted to read this when it first was published, but could only find the hardcover and couldn't afford it then. This is a paperback edition loaned to me by a friend. I am so excited to revisit Alya and Jondalar and their baby daughter.
Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
