Three decades in the telling. The epic journey that began with The Clan of The Cave Bear continues as Ayla becomes the woman she was meant to be. The Land of Painted Caves is the culmination fans have been waiting for. Continuing the story of Ayla and Jondalar, Jean 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.
