Auel's latest book was just released in March.  I read the first five in the Earth's Children series and loved them.  The amount of research Auel conducted for these books is incredible.  I now have the latest book and am in the process of reading it.  The series is about Ayla, a woman of Neanderthal/Modern man Europe, who survives and thrives, first alone, and then with her companions--three horses, a wolf and Jondalar.  Love her books!

I started reading his books back in 1976, during the American Bicentennial.  I think there were eight books in the Kent Family Chronicles.  It was like stepping back into history.  I enjoyed reading about the generations.

Killer Angels and Gods and Generals, if you like to read historical novels, read these.  Civil War novels.
