SummaryAdd a Summary
Orphaned at a young age, Ayla grows up with a clan of people very different from her. She faces many problems because of this.
A novel of an extraordinary person. Ayla was found, almost dead from a cave lion attack, at approximately 5 years old. A cro-magnon child, raised by the vastly different neanderthal people, Ayla learns how to struggle for what she wants even in the face of great hardship. She is a character that all our girls would do well to pattern their behavior after!
