Author's Note:

This is a fantasy, not an attempt to portray people who lived before history began with perfect historical accuracy. However, I've tried to keep its roots firmly in the Earth. The Paleolithic era ended with an explosion of creativity. The human population was still too low for the kind of rapid technological advances that we are accustomed to today, but the people who lived then were every bit as intelligent and capable as their modern descendants. They were real people, not fake dumb savages with the limited vocabulary of 1950's B-movie Indians.

Cultural differences do not presuppose differences in intelligence. That is one thing far too many modern humans do not understand any better than their prehistoric ancestors.So read on, and remember Raven's good advice: If you can't laugh at yourself, you don't know what funny is. ;-)
