“The Autobiography of Eve” by Ralph Morin

Blending biblical lore with caveman history, “The Autobiography of Eve” (ISBN 0615548172) by Ralph Morin is an audacious novel that imagines the mother of man presiding over the Stone and Bronze ages. She creates fire, invents the wheel, forges tools and even shepherds in agriculture and animal husbandry. Written in the format of Eve’s very personal diary, this highly original book takes us through Eve’s childhood, adolescence and the development of her relationship with Adam. 

We see her thoughts as she is cast out of Eden and watch as she ages, becoming a healer and an elder in a small village. From her personal writings, we glimpse a view of Adam that is quite different from the account in Genesis. Although he is a good father and a hard worker, he is a simple man who would rather spend his time hunting game and drinking mead. Cain and Abel figure largely in the diaries as does Seth, Eve’s lesser known third son.

This is not a religious book, but one written from a naturalist’s point of view that puts forth possible scientific explanations for events that take place in the Bible. It posits Eve as an extraordinary woman who might have lived during what scientists now call the Neolithic Revolution or the transition from nomadic hunting and gathering to village life based on agriculture and settlement. 

The living archaeology of “The Autobiography of Eve” is balanced by Eve’s salt-of-the earth tone and low-key humor. In the tradition of “Eve’s Diary” the short story by Mark Twain, Morin’s work is a provocative take on Judeo-Christianity’s most well-known tale. It is a guide to the Neolithic world from an intelligent woman’s point of view and a take on the Old Testament that is uniquely modern. 

“The Autobiography of Eve” is available for sale online at and other channels.
