Light shelfwear to DJ edges. Light soiling of bottom front corner of pages. ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped; Earth's Children #4; 9.30 X 6.40 X 2.20 inches; 760 pages; The author's fourth book in the Earth's Children Series. "The saga continues the cross-continental journey of Ayla, her mate Jondalar and their menagerie to his homeland. En route, they encounter a variety of problems, yet manage to find panaceas for each. Their enlightened compilation of skills, inventions, therapies and recipes transforms the voyagers into spirit-like personas providing The Others with constant awe. A brief encounter with the Neanderthal Clan rekindles the unique charm of the first (and strongest) book. Such locutions as "out of the cooking skin into the coals" or "Mother's path of milk" for the Milky Way are coyly anachronistic. Nonetheless, this volume is as welcome as letters from a long-lost friend. "
