HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE FOR KIDS GROWING UP MANY THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO?

What if you were a 12-year-old boy living in ancient Mesopotamia, sent away from home because there’s no food to eat?

How would you feel if you were a girl, living near the end of the Stone Age, who discovers how to make animal figures out of clay, but the females of her clan are forbidden to do so?

What would you do if you were a boy, living in France 15,000 years ago, who is invited by a stranger to take a dangerous journey to possess a spear-thrower, which could help him become a great hunter?

Marjorie Cowley's books for young readers take place in pre-history, from 5,000 to 15,000 years ago.

Designated a Professional Expert by the Los Angeles Unified School District, author Marjorie Cowley created a curriculum to teach prehistoric archaeology to students from kindergarten through high school in both regular and gifted classes.

Her books Dar and the Spear-Thrower, Anooka's Answer, The Golden Bull  and Wind on the Water  grew out of her teaching experience and lifelong interest in the vast span of our ancient past.
