When Esther discovers an ancient spearhead it is the start of an archaeological dig near her school. Soon she is helping on of the archaeologists on her dig. But then something strange happens and Esther is taken 11000 years into the past, during the Ice Age.
Although she is adopted by a group of Stone Age people that doesn't mean that Esther is out of danger. Not only is the Ice Age world populated by dangerous animals: giant bears, saber tooth tigers, and woolly mammoths, but Esther's relationship with the Stone Age group is a slightly strained. Esther's new friends still aren't sure whether Esther will bring them good or bad luck, and some of them don't want to support a young girl who can't contribute to the group's survival. At the same time, Esther must try to find a way back to the present.
