About Caz Zyvatkauskas

The formative portion of my youth was spent roaming both the green spaces and strip malls of suburban Scarborough, Ontario. Having come full circle, and retired from the University of Toronto, I now live in a similar suburban environment in Gresham, Oregon. On a small section of Johnson Creek my husband and I cultivate historic Barnhaven primroses and provide sanctuary for salamanders, frogs and other wildlife that live in the woods behind our house.

I've been interested in this era of early human history since reading Clan of the Cavebear as a kid. Dead Stone Wake could be seen as an grown up's version of that book, with better writing and a more informed anthropological perspective.

It's a great read with a powerful ending, and it makes a persuasive argument that the qualities of what we consider human are shared with many of our fellow creatures on earth, both those still existing and those we tragically wiped out.

Was initially captivated by the choice of characters. Neanderthals are rarely -- if ever -- written about except by anthropologists. I was immediately drawn into the main character's world. Seeing the world through his eyes was a fascinating experience. The author successfully creates an intriguing and plausable tale about our distant relations. Archaeology is only now seeing how complex Neanderthal society was. Read the book in one "sitting." Couldn't put it down.
