In this story, we step back in time to the days of early hunters and gatherers of nearly 20,000 years ago. Jason wants to be a great hunter like his father -- but will he be ready to seek out and hunt the stag alone? Inspired by the cave paintings of Lascaux, France, this story helps children sense the danger of the hunt and experience the drama of the shaman-trance rituals of an ancient world where surviving every day is an adventure. Through story, children learn about ancient hunting tools, animals, and cave paintings.
