About the book: As an historical novel

In the Shadow of the Mammoth takes place before recorded time. The setting is real. We know that Clovis people did live in the Pacific Northwest along the Columbia River 12,000 years ago. But the characters and events are fiction.

The Clovis left us no records to tell what their daily life was like; nothing that reveals their thoughts or shows how they looked and how they worked. However, they did leave us some clues. Their beautiful stone points tell us that the Clovis were excellent craftsmen and liked color. Hide-scrapers and bone needles tell us that they wore tailored clothing made from animal skins. And Clovis points imbedded in mammoth bones tell us they did indeed eat mammoth meat. But many gaps need to be filled in. What language did the Clovis people speak? Did they have a religion? What games did their children play? What were the roles of women? Patricia Clark has wrestled with these and other questions, and she has painted a vivid picture of Clovis life within a historically accurate framework.
