Product description


"At heart a romance, rich with gripping escapism." - Kirkus review"


In John R. Dann's thrilling and romantic prehistoric saga, "Song of the Axe", the tribe's chieftain was called Grae, after a famous ancestor. Now Dann tells the saga of the wanderings of one prehistoric tribal family over several generations, led by that famous, original Grae and his children. After a volcano erupted and destroyed their tribal home, the powerful daughters of River Woman saved young Grae from a flooded river and made him chief, but that's almost the last thing they agree on before the tribe splinters. Grae leads the main group out of Africa and into central and eastern Europe, searching for safety and a better life. Challenged by truly monstrous evil tribes and guided by spirits, they survive. It takes three generations, and three chieftains named Grae, before the tribe comes to rest. Their story is an adventure on the grandest scale, full of thrilling dangers, romance, and beguiling mystery in an exotic setting. A rich and complex story told with simplicity, authenticity, and vigour, "Song of the Earth" is a worthy companion to "Song of the Axe".
