In this lavishly illustrated book, Patricia Lauber brings to life the Ice Age hunters and gatherers who were the ancestors of modern humans. Writing with clarity and enthusiasm, she examines all aspects of their lives--from what they ate to the art they created. Well-chosen images of artifacts and artists' renditions of ancient life give context to the striking cave paintings that adorn these pages.

Borrowed it from the juvie section as background for another book, mainly for the pictures. Seems fine, nothing objectionable. One odd thing is that it ends abruptly in the middle of a discussion of radiometric dating. No conclusion or the like. Not that I care, it just seems strange.
