The Plains of Passage is the long-awaited fourth volume in Jean M. Auel's epic series, Earth's Children.
To the hunter-gatherers of their world - who have never seen tame animals - Ayla and Jondalar appear enigmatic and frightening. The mystery surrounding the woman, who speaks with a strange accent and talks to animals with their own sounds, is heightened by her uncanny control of a large, powerful wold. The tall, yellow-haired man who rides by her side is also held in awe, not only for the magnificent stallion he commands but also for his skill as a maker of stone tools and for the new weapon he devised that makes hunting less perilous."
