94 Auel, Jean M. THE PLAINS OF PASSAGE
Coronet 1991 0340547421 / 9780340547427 Paperback Good 
Jean Auel's The Plains of Passage, the fourth volume in the Earth's Childre n sequence, is one of the most massive yet (running to nearly 1,000 pages) and has all the sweep and vigour of the earlier books in the series. There are few writers who demonstrate the sheer range and ambition of Auel in the fantasy field. The Clan of the Cave Bear was a truly ground-breaking work, with its sweeping historical saga crammed with the kind of detail that had never been seen before in the genre. The Valley of Horses and The Mammoth Hunters continued to enthral readers with their breathtaking panoplies of a n ancient world.
