This odyssey into the distant past carries us back to the awesome mysteries of the exotic, primeval world of The Clan of the Cave Bear, and to Ayla, now grown into a beautiful and courageous young woman. Cruelly cast out by the new leader of the ancient Clan that adopted her as a child, Ayla leaves those she loves behind and travels alone through a stark, open land filled with dangerous animals but few people, searching for the Others, tall and fair like herself. Living with the Clan has taught Ayla many skills but not real hunting. She finally knows she can survive when she traps a horse, which gives her meat and a warm pelt for the winter, but fate has bestowed a greater gift, an orphaned foal with whom she develops a unique kinship. One winter extends to more; she discovers a way to make fire more quickly and a wounded cave lion cub joins her unusual family, but her beloved animals don't fulfill her restless need for human companionship. Then she hears the sound of a man screaming in pain. She saves tall, handsome Jondalar, who brings her a language to speak and an awakening of love and desire, but Ayla is torn between her fear of leaving her valley and her hope of living with her own kind. Second in the acclaimed Earth's Children(R) series… (mer)

Still remember reading this series, and enjoying. Here's what I wrote after reading in 1983: "Sequel to Clan of the Cave Bear. Interesting as Ayla meets her mate. Unfortunately, too many elements of a lusty novel: "golden mound, throbbing manhood". Interesting, the top quote in Goodreads are of love (eros) statements, too. ( )

Second volume de la saga des Enfants de la Terre où l’on retrouve avec plaisir Ayla chassée de son clan parti à la recherche de son peuple. Ce second tome est l’occasion d’introduire de nouveaux peuples, clans, issus des sapiens sapiens avec leur coutumes, mœurs, langages, méthodes de chasse, cultures, technologies. Ayla se réfugie dans une caverne, au sein d’une petite vallée, où elle va développer les techniques pour survivre. Elle sauve un jeune poulain, puis un jeune lion qui deviendront ses compagnons. Ces évènements permettent à l’auteure d’aborder les questions du moment où l’homme n’a plus considéré l’animal comme uniquement une ressource de nourriture et de vêtements mais également un être avec lequel un lien d’affection peut se nouer. Puis la rencontre entre Ayla et Jondalar permet d’aborder tout les thèmes de la différence, de l’autre ayant une telle différence qu’il est rejeté a priori du fait des incompréhensions liées au différence de culture, de croyance, de communication. Ce volume est également l’occasion de voir la découverte du feu par le frottement d’un silex et d’une pyrite, ou l’invention du propulseur pour amplifier la puissance du jet d’une sagaie, etc… C’est aussi la découverte par Ayla de l’amour et du plaisir sexuel. Le thème déjà très présent dans le premier tome sur le rôle de la femme et sa position sociale dans le groupe est également très largement abordé. Les besoins du roman nécessitent un regroupement spatial et temporel de tous ces thèmes et évènements notamment les avancées technologiques, mais cela ne m’a pas dérangé car l’intérêt principal est de faire prendre conscience qu’à un moment de l’évolution des nos ancêtres ces questions sont apparues. La manière dont l’auteure imagine qu’elles ont été abordées et résolues sont crédibles et permettent au moins d’y réfléchir. ( )

Re-read complete. Lots of skippable parts (tool making, hunting details) but once I got to Chapter 16 it was un-putdownable.

Amulet items:
- A clear quartz crystal found when she decides to stay in the Valley until next Spring.

The first 9 chapters alternate between Ayla, where she went after book 1 and two brothers on a journey along Great Mother River.

- Chapter 16 *heart eyes* the best chapter so far and proves to me, the next time I read this I will skip all Jondalar & Thonolan chapters. I have been skipping some of them and or parts of them but next time, I'm completely skipping them.

Online Fan Fiction: https://www.fanfiction.net/book/Earth-s-Children/?&srt=1&r=103&p=2 See THE SCENT OF MAN near the bottom of the page in the link. Best read after book 2. Edit: on re-read in 2020, didn't like it so much. Lots of hunting *yawn* ( )

Spoilers only if you haven't read publisher summary/back of the book.

This honestly sits between two and four stars for me, and I had a similar ambivalence toward The Clan of the Cave Bear. As with the first book, there are many, many, many passages that are chockfull of anthropological detail and that is either a blessing or a curse, depending on the reader's mindset. What is positive is that Ayla gets a lot more character definition here simply by spending a few years by herself--we learn of her survival and adaptation and in so doing, get to know here more as a character, rather than a symbol of human development. But there are places where it starts to feel like a field guide to surviving alone in a cave, and this can be tedious if making fire with flint and dehydrating meat aren't your favorite pastimes.

The first 300 pages (or so) feature two storylines, and if you read the back cover blurb, you know that they will at some point join each other. This expectation marred the book for me somewhat as 300 pages was too long to wait, but not long enough for me to care enough about the characters other than Ayla. This isn't necessarily a fault of the book, but I wish I hadn't read the blurb. What's more, when the two storylines do...merge....there is, well... A LOT of sex. All of a sudden Call of the Wild turns into a Harlequin Romance. Seemingly, when not hunting, copulation is the no. 1 choice of activity. I'm not bothered by the vivid descriptions as much as it becomes the substantial narrative of the book and distracts from the far more interesting struggle of Ayla's sense of cultural identity. This struggle, through conversation with Jondalar, was for me, the most interesting part of the book, and the commentary on racism and bigotry, although rather obvious, is important for our historical and present consciousness.

The book could be shorter to be sure...trying to maintain the narrative of a journey in one storyline, and a survival epic in another, is a challenge. There are multiple tribes of folks to keep track of, and Auel describes everything with assiduous detail. Just as you get hooked on the secondary storyline, however, she whisks you back to "meanwhile...back at the ranch..", ok....cave. If you really enjoyed Clan of the Cave Bear, this is a worthwhile sequel. Ultimately, however, it tries to be a lot of different things, and not always successfully. I'm intrigued enough to read The Mammoth Hunters in the hope that it gets more into the anthropological differences and socialization aspects promised by the preview. But ultimately, not every book has to be a "saga" and I feel the self-conscious attempts by the author to be "epic" diminish a lot of what is valuable in these books. ( )
