For a quarter of a million years, the Neanderthal clans survived the harsh environment of Ice Age Europe. Using Stone Age technology they hunted and raised their generations. They were a strong, resilient people. Then, 30,000 years ago, 'new men' entered their world, and in a moment of cosmic time, they were gone. This is the story of the Neanderthals of the Circle Valleys, and their encounter with the Long Arms.
From Pilot Hill Press: Richly imagined, deeply researched, Michael Kanaly reaches into the ancient past to bring the Neanderthal world to life.
THE LONG ARMS asks the provocative question: What does it mean to be human?
A book of unusual scope and originality, Michael Kanaly has added another unique novel to his body of work.
