Step back in time to the days of the early human hunters and gatherers nearly 20,000 years ago. Jason aspires to be a great hunter like his father, but will he be ready for his initiation from boyhood to adulthood--to seek out and hunt a stag alone? Inspired by the cave paintings of Lascaux, France, this book will allow readers to sense the danger of the hunt and the drama of the shaman-trance rituals in a past world where every day is a trial to survive. Find out about their hunting tools, their paintings, and the animals around them.
