Alice Roberts transports readers back into the depths of the Ice Age, where bands of hunter gatherers follow reindeer herds along river valleys, shamans communicate with the spirit world, and where survival depends on crafting skill and intimate knowledge of the animals and plants in the landscape.

An epic adventure full of wild animals, vast scenery and heart-stopping danger, inspired by real archaeological discoveries. For fans of His Dark Materials, Wolf Brother and The Last Bear, join Tuuli on the prehistoric adventure of a lifetime.
