CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR eBooks Coming in October


Jean M. Auel’s iconic book The Clan of the Cave Bear will celebrate its 30th anniversary on September 30th. In honor of that milestone, the five books that make up the Earth’s Children series will be released as ebooks on October 6th. The sixth and final book in the series, The Land of Painted Caves, will be released on March 29, 2011.

The Clan of the Cave Bear is set roughly 35,000 years ago during the Ice Age. It starts with 5-year-old Cro-Magnon Ayla who has lost her parents in an earthquake. She is taken in by a group of Neanderthals who call themselves the Clan of the Cave Bear. As Ayla matures, her differences become apparent and cause friction between her and other clan members. Daryl Hannah starred as Ayla in the 1986 movie based on the book.
