Demian's Thoughts:

This is a fairly interesting book; it's not all that different from the earlier dinosaur-related book in structure, but the subject matter is less familiar.

Dtar's Thoughts:

This story bounces you around in time and location as you search for creators of cave art and one subject that they had drawn. Since one of these goals involves interacting with prehistoric humans, I find it a bit more interesting than book 2. The ending features a nice bit of speculative anthropology.
