Le clan de l'ours des cavernes by Jean M. Auel Summary

Il y a 35 000 ans, une longue période glaciaire s'achève et la Terre commence à se réchauffer. Lentement, durant des millénaires, l'homme s'est peu à peu dégagé de la bête et il apparaît à peu près tel qu'il est aujourd'hui. Il connaît l'outil, le feu, le vêtement. Il fabrique des armes pour chasser, aménage des grottes pour s'abriter. Dans le chaos de la nature, il est parvenu à créer un peu d'harmonie. En ces premiers temps du monde, Ayla, une fillette de cinq ans, échappe à un tremblement de terre et se sort des griffes d'un lion pour se réfugier auprès d'un clan étranger. On l'adopte. Très vite, les gestes et les paroles d'Ayla suscitent l'étonnement et l'inquiétude.

Earth's Children by Source Wikipedia Summary

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 22. Chapters: Jondalar, Others, Ayla, The Clan of the Cave Bear, The Shelters of Stone, Jean M. Auel, The Mammoth Hunters, The Valley of Horses, The Plains of Passage. Excerpt: Earth's Children is a series of speculative alternative historical fiction novels written by Jean M. Auel set circa 30,000 years before present. There are six novels in the series. Auel had previously mentioned in interviews that there would be a seventh novel, but publicity announcements for the sixth have confirmed it is the final book in the sequence. The series is set in Europe during the Upper Paleolithic era, after the date of the first ceramics discovered, but before the last advance of glaciers. The books focus on the period of co-existence between Cro-Magnons and Neanderthals. As a whole, the series is a tale of personal discovery: coming-of-age, invention, cultural complexities, and, beginning with the second book, explicit romantic sex. It tells the story of Ayla, an orphaned Cro-Magnon girl who is adopted and raised by a tribe of Neanderthals and who later embarks on a journey to find the Others (her own kind), meeting along the way her romantic interest and supporting co-protagonist, Jondalar. The story arc in part comprises a travel tale, in which the two lovers journey from a region of Ukraine to Jondalar's home in what is now France, along an indirect route up the Danube River valley. In the third and fourth works, they meet various groups of Cro-Magnons and encounter their cultural contexts, including bona-fide technologies. The couple finally return to southwestern France and Jondalar's people in the fifth novel. The series includes a highly-detailed focus on botany, herbology, herbal medicine, archaeology and anthropology, but it also features substantial amounts of romance, coming-of-age crises, and - employing significant literary...

Praise for the Earth’s Children® series “Auel is a highly imaginative writer. She humanizes prehistory and gives it immediacy and clarity.”—The New York Times Book Review “Storytelling in the grand tradition . . . From the violent panorama of spring on the steppes to musicians jamming on a mammoth-bone marimba, Auel’s books are a stunning example of world building. They join the short list of books, like James Clavell’s Shogun and Frank Herbert’s Dune, that depict exotic societies so vividly that readers almost regard them as ‘survival manuals.’ ”—Vogue “Jean Auel has established herself as one of our premier storytellers. . . . Her narrative skill is supreme.”—Chicago Tribune “Pure entertainment at its sublime, wholly exhilarating best.”—Los Angeles Times “Readers who fell in love with little Ayla will no doubt revel in her prehistoric womanhood.”—People “Lively and interesting, enhanced greatly by the vividly colored backdrop of early humanity . . . Auel is a prodigious researcher.”—The Washington Post Book World “Among modern epic spinners, Auel has few peers. . . . She deftly creates a whole world, giving a sense of the origins of class, ethnic, and cultural differences that alternately divide and fascinate us today.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The Valley of Horses by Jean M. Auel Summary

The second novel in the Earth's Children series, Jean M.

Le prix de l'Hérésie by S.J. PARRIS Summary

Lincoln College, Oxford, 22 mai 1583. Dans l'aube naissante, un hurlement déchire le silence. Le corps mutilé d'un homme est retrouvé gisant dans une mare de sang. Esprit visionnaire poursuivi par l'Inquisition, Giordano Bruno, comprend que son séjour ne sera pas de tout repos. Entre papistes et anglicans, partisans de Marie Stuart et de la Reine Vierge, une guerre se prépare et c'est dans la crainte d'un complot catholique, qu'Élizabeth Ire a chargé le Napolitain en fuite d'être " son oreille ". En quelques jours, la petite ville universitaire devient le théâtre de l'affrontement fratricide des enfants de Dieu. Catholiques et Protestants se livrent une bataille sans merci où les coups portés se comptent au nombre de cadavres... Chaque camp ira jusqu'au bout. Quitte à courtiser ce qu'ils combattent tous les deux : l'hérésie. "Giordano Bruno fait partie de cette rare catégorie de héros, charismatique et subtil qui appelle un "encore" et que nous laissons avec le désir que la talentueuse Parris nous en donne un peu plus."

Auel’s bestselling series • A Q&A with the author about the Earth’s Children® series The Shelters of Stone opens as Ayla and Jondalar, along with their animal friends, Wolf, Whinney, and Racer, complete their epic journey across Europe and are greeted by Jondalar’s people: the Zelandonii. The people of the Ninth Cave of the Zelandonii fascinate Ayla. Their clothes, customs, artifacts, even their homes—formed in great cliffs of vertical limestone—are a source of wonder to her. And in the woman Zelandoni, the spiritual leader of the Ninth Cave (and the one who initiated Jondalar into the Gift of Pleasure), she meets a fellow healer with whom to share her knowledge and skills. But as Ayla and Jondalar prepare for the formal mating at the Summer Meeting, there are difficulties. Not all the Zelandonii are welcoming. Some fear Ayla’s unfamiliar ways and abhor her relationship with those they call flatheads and she calls Clan. Some even oppose her mating with Jondalar, and make their displeasure known. Ayla has to call on all her skills, intelligence, knowledge, and instincts to find her way in this complicated society, to prepare for the birth of her child, and to decide whether she will accept new challenges and play a significant role in the destiny of the Zelandonii. Jean Auel is at her very best in this superbly textured creation of a prehistoric society. The Shelters of Stone is a sweeping story of love and danger, with all the wonderful detail—based on meticulous research— that makes her novels unique. It is a triumphant continuation of the Earth’s Children® saga that began with The Clan of the Cave Bear. And it includes an amazing rhythmic poem that describes the birth of Earth’s Children and plays its own role in the narrative of The Shelters of Stone.

To the hunter-gatherers of their world--who have never seen tame animals--Ayla and Jondalar appear enigmatic and frightening. The mystery surrounding the woman, who speaks with a strange accent and talks to animals with their own sounds, is heightened by her uncanny control of a large, powerful wolf. The tall, yellow-haired man who rides by her side is also held in awe, not only for the magnificent stallion he commands, but also for his skill as a crafter of stone tools, and for the new weapon he devises, the spear-thrower. In the course of their cross-continental odyssey, Ayla and Jondalar encounter both savage enemies and brave friends. Together they learn that the vast and unknown world can be difficult and treacherous, but breathtakingly beautiful and enlightening as well. All the pain and pleasure bring them closer to their ultimate destination, for the orphaned Ayla and the wandering Jondalar must reach that place on earth they can call home. As sweeping and spectacular as the land she creates, Jean M. Auel’s The Plains of Passage is an astonishing novel of discovery, danger, and love, a triumph for one of the world’s most original and popular authors.
