A JOURNEY BACK IN TIME TO PREHISTORIC ICE AGE EUROPE AT THE DAWN OF MODERN MAN AND HUMAN CULTURE.
25,000 years ago: today’s Southern France: When a young girl returns to her home in present day Germany she finds her family and clan killed. Greatly out numbered she must flee for her life from the killers who came from the east. She takes to her small boat escaping on the river. With nowhere safe to go she rides the river’s current taking the river into the unknown. She had never felt so alone.
She remembers a story her tribe’s shaman told around the campfire many times. A story of a young shaman long ago, who had stayed with her clan for a short time, when he was on his sacred spirit journey. The story said he was from a great clan of many people far to the west and south. A clan to the west he called The Lion Tribe.
It was her only hope and she sets out overland on her solitary journey. It would be a journey of nearly two moons across a hostile and dangerous landscape filled with predators like saber cats, lions, and hyenas. And other humans to be wary of.
She sets out to the southwest, to the storied lands of the setting sun in today’s Southern France, a land teeming with megafauna. It was her only choice…and it changes her life forever when she meets The Lion Tribe and their powerful shaman Magwah
