Jean Auel's series The Earth's Childen, starting with 1980's Clan of the Cave Bear and continuing with The Valley of Horses , The Mammoth Hunters , The Plains of Passage , and The Shelter of Stone , is probably the best-known and most popular "prehistoric" fiction series available for readers. Featuring an incredibly strong female protagonist, Ayla, and a large cast of well-defined supporting characters, Auel's works successfully juggle romance, adventure, history and exploration. Set 20,000 years ago, during the Ice Age, Auel's books are rich in authentic detail, and highly descriptive. The relaxed pacing allows readers to truly absorb the surroundings that Auel takes such pains to describe. Though no other author is precisely like Auel, there are several who have either stand-alone novels or series focusing on prehistoric peoples or societies.
