A Meaningful Glance into Our Past

I just finished this book in one sitting, having only intended to read a chapter or two. I was drawn in and instantly caught up in the story of Zol, and his trek toward becoming a man in his clan. This book is not only engaging, but is historically accurate, using the Clovis people as Zol's clan base. The characters seemed real and engaging; I found myself holding my breath as Zol encounters dangers that seem unfathomable for an eleven year old boy to face in 2005. I enjoyed particularly the appearance and antics of Koot, the young hunter's pet crow. His actions and behavior were very accurate for those of the Corvid family and I could not help but laugh out loud. I would certainly recommend this book to intermediate readers, especially those young people who enjoy historical fiction. Furthermore, In the Shadow of the Mammoth would be a wonderful addition to anyone's "read-aloud" collection. This book is a triumph for Ms. Clark, and I look forward to seeing more books from her.

An Interesting Way To Learn About The Ice Age

This book is exciting from the very first page.I have bought it for six middle-school aged children in my family, both male and female, and they all loved the story. Even their parents were intrigued with the topic aand read it as well. As a former teacher, I highly recommend "In The Shadow Of The Mammoth" as a wonderful addition to a teenager's personal library.

Enchanting Read

An easy read that moves at a fast pace. Both my daughter and son loved this book (pre-teens). Although the setting is the ice age, the story speaks to the universal struggle kids face in trying to belong, have a purpose and be courageous. The action (especially the encounters with the Sabortooth Cat) had them hooked. They also really enjoyed Zol's pet crow's antics. The illustrations are beautiful and the characters come to life.
