Publisher's Summary

The third book in the Bonesetter series, a prehistorical account of Pell, a boy in a primitive society who learns to "set bones". 

In this third story, he’s become the de facto leader of the Cold Springs tribe, though he still resists the mantle. The tale follows his invention of such things as the spear-thrower, chimney, and the beginnings of agriculture - things that will markedly improve the lives of his fellow humans. He and Gia mate, and, in hopes of finding more lost members of Gia’s former tribe, set out to travel the great river to the sea. Despite the awe his ideas engender in those around him, he remains humble and commits himself to helping those in need - even the ones he doesn’t like.

Fantastic!

This series continues to get better with each book. The narrator did an excellent job. I'm excited for the next book.

Lawrence Donner's, no-brainer.

Loved all three books. Lawrence's stories are always entertaining, educational and just plain fun to read, in this case, listen to.

Cave Girls Want Me. Cave men want to be me.

If you've made it this far into the series, then you're probably expecting this installment to continue the tribe-building trope that formed the basic story arc of the first two, and, congratulations, you would be right: our hero, Pell, keeps on attracting new members to his tribe, his wolf gets a wolf-friend, and he continues to innovate new ways to make prehistoric life more civilized. For fans of Dahners' superb feel-good fantasies, "Summer" doesn't disappoint on these counts; however, do be forewarned: the good author does inject just a teensy-weensy more unpleasantness into this particular plot than you may be used to. Now, don't worry; there's nothing here like the kind of disturbing torture-fantasies that wind their way into a good bit of modern fiction, but parts of this particular tale are unusually dark for a Dahners novel. Of course, everything eventually finds its way back to sunny wish-fulfillment, but younger listeners might need a bit of parental guidance.

Great book

Slightly darker premise than the previous books in the series it still has that enjoyable and interesting world building you get in the earlier books.
