Her name is Yanan, and she lived over 20 thousand years ago on the ice-swept tundra of Siberia. Her people are hunters, living in kinship with tigers and wolves, struggling through harsh winters with little meat and wood, and rejoicing in brief, glorious summers. Reindeer Moon is the story of Yanan's rise to womanhood-sensual and fiercely proud, passionate and dangerously brave-and a breathtaking journey to the vanished world. Best-selling author Elizabeth Marshall Thomas deftly combines anthropology, romance, history, and adventure to create a magnificent story of Paleolithic life.

""My story is not a big story," Yanan says, but she's wrong. Though living only a brief life in central Siberia twenty thousand years ago, she creates for us a window onto a world of struggle with cold, hunger, death and all the passions that long have been part of our lives. We too can hunt the mammoths, sit with the family spirits at the smoke holes of lodges and huddle for warmth below. We too carry off our child-heavy bodies to give birth under the pine trees near riverbanks. Alyssa Bresnahan's resonant, alto voice matches perfectly the voice of the courageous, young narrator. It's strong and controlled, even when Yanan's life seems most threatened by hostile forces, yet tender and wistful, befitting this poignant, Paleolithic self-portrait. P.E.F.
