A sensitive and very intelligent book on the art of the paleolothic, and a very good read. She does a nice job of mixing the latest thinking about the time period and its people from the whole range of experts, along with personal and professional reflections on the caves and the art itself. Fascinating, she keeps it from being too dry though some of the lengthy description could have been cut a little bit...but her love of the subject is palpable, so perhaps not.
