Publisher Comments:

The highly anticipated sixth book of Jean Auel's Earth's Children® series, The Land of Painted Caves, is the culmination fans have been waiting for. Continuing the story of Ayla and Jondalar, Auel combines her brilliant narrative skills and appealing characters with a remarkable re-creation of the way life was lived more than 25,000 years ago. The Land of Painted Caves is an exquisite achievement by one of the world's most beloved authors.

From the Hardcover edition.

This book had some great scenes in it but you had to read through a lot of repetition from the previous books to get to the new stuff. You also have to get through a lot of descriptions about the caves and ceremonies. While some of that stuff might be interesting it would have been better to have more new story and less of those details.
