Thorn stared about in wonder.

Thorn stared about in wonder. scattered fires around which groups of men were sitting, surrounded by their wares. One group immediately caught Thorn’s eye; stacked high against the stone wall behind them was an immense pile of reindeer antlers. What are those men doing with all those antlers, Father? he asked Rilik in a low voice. Rilik glanced at the men. They make digging sticks with them, Thorn.

THE HORSEMASTERS Joan Wolf PART ONE The Tribe of the Red Deer Chapter One The air in the cave was quiet. That was what awed Ronan most about the initiation cave: it was so quiet. The walls in here were decorated with engravings of animals: buffalo, reindeer, and horses. Most important to the cave’s purpose, however, was the sign of the Mother, the P, which was chiseled again and again into the limestone walls. The river passed through this chamber and then disappeared out of sight into the profound darkness of the depths of the hill.

The Horsemasters book. Joan Wolf uses this story to convey potential reasons for the taming of horses, and for the cave paintings that still exit throughout France and Spain, along with her ideas on how the peoples of that time lived. Aug 18, 2014 Bea Carroll rated it it was amazing.

One of the best books I have ever read. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 16 years ago. As a history major, i spend a lot of my time trying to find decent historical fiction that I can read and tell other people about. When I first read The Clan of The Cave Bear when i was 10, i thought that no book could be better than that. Joan Wolf's books (all of the historical fiction ones) are almost as good.

A truly amazing story in one of the greatest sagas ever. Joan Wolf is a fantastic author. The idea of separating the books by generations but tying them together by characters we recognize from the previous book is a tremendous idea.
I can't wait to see how the next book ties into this one.
The homage she pays to our amazing friend, the horse, warms my heart. I truly adore horses and it breaks my heart I can no longer can ride or care for one. I believe it probably took people like Ronan and Nel to recognize and then befiend the 1st wild horses. One like Ronan to first think of it and one like Nel to make it happen.
The character of all the tribesmen and tribeswomen are very well defined and totally believable. The ways they lived is fascinating and Ms Wolf must have spent many hours in research to make it so realistic. The desciptions of the Cave Paintings are riveting. It is one of my great regrets that when I lived in Germany I never had an opportunity to visit one of the Painted Caves. I would have loved it.
If you pass up this grand trilogy you will miss one of the greatest sagas of Prehistoric life ever wriitten, in my humble option.

I have been collecting certain hardcover books for years. Joan Wolf is amongst my favorites. I bought a hardback copy of Horsemasters and to my surprise, it arrived in a matter of days. (Usually books take longer). In excellent condition, with no damage to this first edition book, it was an excellent read. For those not familiar with Joan Wolf; this book is a continuation of her "White Mare" book, and "The Dawn Stag". Each book stands on its own merit but to have them all is wonderful and I highly recommend looking for them all. "The Boar Stone" is another from the same time period as well and will be adding a hardcover version of that book to my ever-growing library shortly. If you enjoy burying yourself into a well written book about the tribes of people who are now part of the myth and legend of the Celtic Tribes, you will enjoy all of Joan Wolfs work.

Love this trilogy, which may be inaccurate in terms of historical detail (I don't really know) but which brings this period to life.

It is a shame that this rather interesting story was marred by the excessive errors in spelling, punctuation, missing words, etc. which should have been corrected by editing. This book had more errors than any book I have ever read. One was left to wonder if the mountains mentioned were the Atlas mountains or the Altas mountains because the spelling changed so frequently. I have found that books in this genre often have numerous errors and seemingly no proofreading.

I SURE HOPE SHE HAS MORE BOOKS FROM THIS PERIOD IN TIME, IT IS JUST WONDERFUL READING. COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR MORE! BILLIE GILDERSLEEVE

Joan Wolf's books on early man are so great. I enjoyed this so much and look forward to more from the author on the same subject.
I love books of time long past and the way of life at that time, especially books that explain medicines, how they clothe and feed themselves.
