Read full description of the books:
Georgia Kaye's historic fiction "Death in the Time of Ice" is an engrossing story about life in a Neanderthal tribe: how they communicate, hunt, and live in a community. It revolves around one of two twins (Ung Strong Arm and Enga Dancing Flower) as she grows to adulthood, seeks a mate, hunts to save her tribe, and loves her twin sister dearly. A mammoth hunt, critical because the tribe is starving, ends badly when sister Ung is gored and the tribe's leader is murdered. The tribe has no experience with members killing other members or solving such a crime, but this doesn't stop Enga as she struggles to find clues, unravel their meaning, and get anyone in the tribe to listen.
This is an exciting immersion into Neanderthal culture (intriguing to me because I'm an armchair investigator of earliest man) with a few interesting differences from anything I've ever read:
* They communicate with thoughts not words or hand gestures.
* Women are more powerful than men.
* The youth of the tribe have considerable influence over group decisions.
The author does a wonderful job of portraying this struggling group's hunger and desperation as they fight to survive in an impending and deepening Ice Age world where their primary sources of food are disappearing. It is well-plotted, nicely-paced with intriguing characters that are believable as part of man's primal past. It is written in a simple straightforward style reminiscent of Bonnye Matthews' "Ki'ti's Story". Recommended for those interested in a peek into primeval life.
