Irving Crump
Og of the Cave People
1935

Dedicated to Timmy, Peter, Charlie, Jimmy, Buddy, Herbert, Peggy, and all the other boys and girls who have so enthusiastically followed the adventures of Og on the radio.

from the dust jacket:

This is a story of the Dawn Age, of Og the Cave Dweller, who lived long ago when men were little better than animals. Og was the first of all human beings to begin the slow march of progress which led toward civilization. He had discovered fire and learned to use crude weapons. Now he continues to lead the struggle against the giant beasts of the jungle and the greater terrors of nature. He joins the backward Flat Heads who still live in trees and helps them learn the simplest elements of knowledge. Ru and Tao are his companions when he overcomes Pong, the devil doctor, when he invents fish nets and traps and when he fights savage beasts and savage men.

The thrill-packed adventures of a boy who lived hundreds of thousands of years ago are vividly recreated in this exciting tale of prehistoric times.
