Painted Earth Temple

This book tells the story of White Buffalo Woman's origins in Europe and her adventurous migration to the New World, while describing the life of the people who worshiped in the great cave temples of Europe thirty-six hundred years ago, known as the people of the Painted Earth Temple. These Paleolithic hunter-gatherers had a deep connection with the wisdom of the earth, and when the world shook with the might of Mount Thera's eruption, the largest in recorded history and resulting in major global climatic changes, the people of the Painted Earth Temple were some of the last surviving hunter-gatherers in Europe. Their small village was nestled within a hidden valley in the Alps and separated from the nearest neighboring tribe by several weeks' journey over treacherous trails. When the Aryan tribes overwhelmed the older cultures of the world, the people of the Painted Earth Temple were forced to leave Gaia's Land and migrate over the land bridge into the New World.
