It is a genre in its own right. Go ahead and search it; see for yourself. I chose the period after a trip across the arid American West because I was inspired to write a tale of survival. Difficult as it could be to survive in deserts and mountains in any period, it seems most remarkable and challenging in an era which was technologically very primitive, as the late paleolithic period was. Maybe we are the primitive ones. It is an exceptionally well-written series that is great for kids and parents. Freda, you have a lovely profile that reminds me of one of those Italian Quattrocento portraits.
Thanks for your kind comment, and for your earlier enthusiastic support. Although I wanted to keep the setting indefinite—it could have taken place in Turkey, Siberia, Morocco, or most anywhere—it was inspired by my travels in the American West. How, I asked myself, would a prehistoric boy survive in a comparable barren wilderness of deserts, rocky places, and salt lakes, armed only with a spear?

I tried to put myself in my hero's place. Zan-Gah, is in search of his missing twin brother, Dael. His long quest leads to suffering, captivity, and conflict.
In three years, he passes from an uncertain boyhood to a tried and proven manhood and a role of leadership among his people. I was very interested in character development. If my characters grew, my young readers would grow too.

As an art historian, I am familiar with the art of prehistoric times, and some of the theories that try to explain it. What was their language like? How did they feel about caves that were warm in the winter an cool in the summer? Did they feel love for their families and compassion for those among them who were suffering? Would they be willing to struggle and kill for a scrap of food or well-made weapon? Were the tribes of people very different from each other, and did they always fight; or did they trade and cooperate at times?
