Have you ever wondered what life was like for kids growing up thousands and 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 who discovers how to make things out of clay, but the females of her clan are forbidden to do so?

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.

Ms. Cowley has traveled widely, pursuing her fascination with ancient art and architecture. She has been a graphic designer and calligrapher, but now devotes her time to writing books for young readers. She graduated from Stanford University and lives in Santa Monica, California.
