The highly anticipated sixth book of Jean Auel’s Earth’s Children® series, The Land of Painted Caves, is the . Three decades in the telling

The highly anticipated sixth book of Jean Auel’s Earth’s Children® series, The Land of Painted Caves, is the culmination fans have been waiting for. Continuing the story of Ayla and Jondalar, Auel combines her brilliant narrative skills and appealing characters with a remarkable re-creation of the way life was lived more than 25,000 years ago. The Land of Painted Caves is an exquisite achievement by one of the world’s most beloved authors. Three decades in the telling. The epic journey that began with The Clan of The Cave Bear continues as Ayla becomes the woman she was meant to be. Excerpt.

Hersey was on a Navy ship on his way to Japan to report the story when he fell ill and someone gave him books to read . With journalism, Hersey once said, the reader is always conscious of the person who’s writing it and explaining to you what’s taken place.

Hersey was on a Navy ship on his way to Japan to report the story when he fell ill and someone gave him books to read, one of which happened to be Thornton Wilder’s The Bridge of San Luis Rey. It was a novel that traced the stories of five people who are killed when a bridge collapses. He said he wanted to have the reader directly confronted by the characters, so he tried to write the piece in such a way that, as he put it, my mediation would, ideally, disappear.

Talk about The Touch of the Earth

In the 1970's and 1980's I read three books by Jean Hersey--The Shape of a Year, Change in the Wind, and A Widow's Pilgrimage--and I enjoyed them immensely. Mrs. Hersey wrote non-fiction about her life, thoughts, and nature. Her work reminded me of Gladys Taber, whose books I also loved. At the time, I wanted to read The Touch of the Earth, but I never caught up with it until recently when I found it on Amazon. Sadly, it was a disappointment. Like The Shape of a Year, The Touch of the Earth has a chapter for each month and describes the changes in the natural environment and the author's experiences and reflections on that month. But I found it difficult to get interested in this book and I only wanted to read a few pages at a time. I don't know whether this one is far inferior to Mrs. Hersey's other works or whether my tastes have changed in thirty-some years. I probably should reread some of her other books and see how I react to them at this point in time. But for now, I would suggest that anyone who wants to become acquainted with Jean Hersey should try The Shape of a Year or Change in the Wind before getting The Touch of the Earth.

Always enjoy Hersey's descriptive powers coupled with her terrific knowledge of the natural world. Wish she'd been our neighbor.
Delightful.

Beautiful book. Didn't expect large print, but it was in good shape!
