Earth’s Children is a prehistoric fiction series of novels by American novelist Jean M. Auel. The series is set 30,000 years ago and deals with subjects including (but not limited to) invention, culture and sex. It also covers controversial topics such as Homosapiens interbreeding with Neanderthals.
