Jean Marie Auel is an American novelist who is not known for her prolific quantity of books, but rather a very select number of quality novels known as the Earth’s Children series. Years before the books were published, Auel did a tremendous amount of research about the Ice Age in order to prepare for writing her prehistoric fiction series.

The Earth’s Children series consists of six books stretched out over more than thirty years. It started with The Clan of the Cave Bear in 1980 and concluded just recently in 2011 with The Land of Painted Caves. Below is the order of Jean M.
