The InheritorsBook - 1963
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
This novel is the bleak, poetic dramatization of a tragic encounter between the last Neanderthals and the first humans - the inheritors. A group of Neanderthals returns to its summer quarters, a cave in a cliff above a river, expecting to continue the old routines. Down by the river one of the clan disappears. And lingering in the bushes is the unfamiliar scent of another creature that follows and watches them and has the power to cross the water. Golding's Neanderthals are powerfully plausible. He gets inside their heads, seeing the world through their eyes; and gives them their own simple personalities.
