Which fiction or non-fiction books connect you with paleo experience

Recommendations for Paleo Novels

This is about those books that have moved you into thinking on food in a historical or even anthropological sense. I am asking about those books that have the power to show us how different people, living in societies more connected to nature, went about living, hunting, farming. It may have been novels, stories, perhaps an anthropological book (addressed to the general public). I am not asking about books that describe the modern paleo diet, but rather those books that can show you, in fiction or non-fiction, the lives of hunters, farmers or their societies.

My favorites are: Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond, a brilliant description of the way in which food, animal domestication, germs and war have come to shape societies; Top of the world by Hans Ruesch a classic novel on the lives of the Innuit; and The old man and the sea, by Ernest Hemingway, an extraordinary story of a man fighting alone to make a living on his boat in the straits of Florida, in mid twentieth century.

My question was not specifically about hunter gatherers, but about those books fiction or non fiction that motivate people to think on food, hunting and farming as a basic part of living. That is why I mentioned Hemingway and also Diamond: neither of them is specifically about HG groups, but they write on issues that force you to think that way. I regret that this was not understood.
