It's a book that conjures up so many different emotions for a young reader. Four stars.' -- amazon.com reader review 'I read this book at the age of 10. It was my first novel about prehistoric times and lead me to buying many more as I got older. Great for children with an interest in archaeology or history. Five stars.' -- amazon.com reader review 'Excellent details of prehistoric life are presented. Honor, gratitude and hatred combine to create an interesting read for middle-school students.' -- amazon.com reader review

About the Author

Kathleen Fidler (1899-1980) was the author of over eighty books for children, many of which were broadcast on BBC Radio Children's Hour and Schools programmes. She had a long-standing affection for Scotland, and was inspired to write The Boy With the Bronze Axe after a visit to Skara Brae on Orkney. The Fidler Award stood as a memorial to her deep interest in children and writers.
