Orphaned at a young age, Ayla grows up with a clan of people very different from her. She faces many problems because of this.
A novel of an extraordinary person. Ayla was found, almost dead from a cave lion attack, at approximately 5 years old.

She is a character that all our girls would do well to pattern their behavior after!
