Barnes & Noble will present Dr. Neil Bockoven, author of the epic new novel, Moctu and the Mammoth People, a powerful coming-of-age thriller set 45,000 years ago in Paleolithic Italy.

The book follows a Cro-Magnon youth who must fight for leadership and love in his tribe while doing battle with mammoths, wolves and saber-toothed cats as well as his captors, the “Pale Ones,” a fearsome group of seemingly cannibalistic Neanderthals. The novel is earning excellent reviews and comparisons to Jean Auel's classic Clan of the Cave Bears. Bockoven, an award-winning PhD geologist and journalist, uses the most recent genetic and scientific discoveries about our earliest ancestors to lend authenticity to the book, but his storytelling skills rule supreme.
