Publisher's Summary

Sixty-five million years ago, a disastrous cataclysm eliminated three quarters of all life on Earth. Overnight, the age of dinosaurs ended. The age of mammals had begun. But what if history had happened differently? What if the reptiles had survived to evolve into intelligent life?

In West of Eden, best-selling author Harry Harrison has created a rich, dramatic saga of a world where the descendants of the dinosaurs struggled with a clan of humans in a battle for survival. Here is the story of Kerrick, a young hunter who grows to manhood among the dinosaurs, escaping at last to rejoin his own kind. His knowledge of their strange customs makes him the humans' leader...and the dinosaurs' greatest enemy.

Rivalling Frank Herbert's Dune in the majesty of its scope and conception, West of Eden is a monumental epic of love and savagery, bravery and hope.

    "A great and roaming story"

    I have read the book many times. I'm so happy it's now available in audio book. The reader took a little getting used to but well worth persevering. A wonderful story in a well thought out and hugely detailed world.

    Story
    "Good idea stretched too thin."

    The premise for the book is good and it starts out well but goes on for too long with a repetitive storyline. It would have benefitted from being kept shorter.
    Well narrated.

    "Good Read"

    Good story, predictable at times. Characters were unique. Narration strong but not smooth as in many stories and did not flow.
