Cover Story: The Land of the Painted Caves by Jean Auel

So here it is, the cover for the sixth and final book in the Earth's Children series by Jean Auel.

As we discussed when we did a Spotlight on the series not too long ago, it's been a long wait since the last book came out.

What do you think of the cover? Are you going to read it? Are you planning on rereading any of the earlier books first?


  1. I read the first book in high school...over 20 years ago. It still remains one of my favorite books. Even after all these years, it has stayed with me. It's a shame that I still haven't read the rest of the series. I own all of them. *hangs head in shame* I just never got around to reading them. I think 2011 is the year to pick up with the second book! I might listen to the first one on audio first though. And in answer to your other question, yes...I love the cover!

  2. As a writer, I have to admire her prolific output. I wonder if even her dreams are about the caves....

  3. I'm so excited about this book! I've been following The Earth's Children series for several years now and it's one of my favourite rereads. The cover fits the series, so I'm quite happy with it.:)
