If you are someone who enjoys reading intelligently written books by an author who has done intensive research on her subject, and if you are interested in our primitive ancestors, then I highly recommend the Winds of Change series of books by Bonnye Matthews, four at this point, that present a fresh outlook on Neanderthal people, starting 75,00 years ago in the first books and coming up to 35,000 years ago in the most current volume. Bonnye presents a fascinating and fully developed new perspective on the intelligence and social behavior regarding Neanderthals that goes beyond the scope of traditional theories.
You will be enchanted with the characters Bonnye has created to tell her very creative stories, and will certainly relate to much that they went through in their lives which modern humans still have to deal with in their daily lives.
Her books are well worth reading, and are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble online, as well as on www.booksbybonnye.com.
I hope you will look into the Winds of Change Series
