Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Two tribes meld in Wolf's fable of Ice Age Europe, which is likely to evoke comparisons with Jean Auel's Earth Children series. A Literary Guild selection in cloth.
Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

YA-- A skillfully woven story of romance, intrigue, and conflict set in prehistoric southern France. When the women of the Tribe of the Horse die from polluted water, the young men kidnap women from the matriarchal Tribe of the Red Deer to keep their clan from extinction. The success of the raid causes dissention in the male ranks of the Tribe of the Horse. Mar, the leader of the younger men, must deal with the tribal conflict, as well as his feelings for Alin, the beautiful daughter of the Red Deer priestess and ``Chosen One'' of the Mother Goddess. Resolution of the conflict between the generations, the sexes, the gods, and Alin and Mar make fascinating reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pre-historic love story Feb. 2 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book at first with a bit of apprehension, would it turn into a "men are evil and women are sinless" kind of a story?
I am happy to say it did not. It is a fresh story of love and partnership set in ancient France 14,000 years ago. Alin and Mar learn to see eye to eye in their two seperate views of life. A good yarn followed by the just as good "The Horsemasters", which is set several years later.(the young girl Fali is now the Old One)

Format:Mass Market Paperback
An enchanting tale about life in prehistoric France. How tribes interacted and customs change. A love story with a great ending. I enjoyed this book more than Jean Auel's books. Quicker paced, harder to put down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable June 16 2013
By A. Portsmouth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me from a friend who has teenage daughters. I should've know better; if the daughters liked the book, it was going to be a little cheesy.

Live and learn.

It's a romance novel, plain and simple. Not my particular cup of tea, but to each their own.

I did like the fact that this story is set in the ice age in what would now be called Eastern Europe, and they hunt wooly mammoths for food. Aside from that, it's a love story with an ending that's introduced in the first chapter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good prehistoric fiction Dec 4 2010
By Jessica Niebylski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
While not nearly as detailed as Jean Auel's Earth's Children, Wolf's Daughter of the Red Deer is a solid read. The characters are well drawn and believable, the world is described enough to give you an idea, but doesn't detail every blade of grass like Auel does. Where Jean Auel's hunters have a complicated hunting ritual more like Catholic Mass with chanting and prayers, Wolf's hunters have a more interesting take with men dressing up in bison hides and being "killed" by others. Likewise, the characters have more personality and emotions and Wolf makes an attempt to keep the language simple and the thoughts "pre-modern" although she does slip a few times. Most of the supporting characters like Jes, Tane, Tor and Mada are likeable but not perfect.

There are humorous moments and a happy ending. Even the "bad guys" have a few redeeming qualities. At times the romance gets a little heavy and the main romance between Mar and Alin is quite predictable. I would have liked to see more prehistoric animals although there is a mammoth hunting scene!
