Clan of the Cave Bear, the November book Club selection by Jean M. Auel, is a novel of awesome beauty and power, sharing a moving saga about people, relationships, and the boundaries of love.
In the dawn of modern humans, a girl named Ayla is swept up in the harsh and beautiful Ice Age world shared with the ones who called themselves The Clan of the Cave Bear. A natural disaster leaves the young girl wandering alone in an unfamiliar and dangerous land until she is found by a woman of the Clan, people very different from her own kind. To them, blond, blue-eyed Ayla looks peculiar and ugly; she is one of the Others, but Iza cannot leave the girl to die.
