Wold Newton Universe
Also published as an eBook (2012).
DEDICATION: "For Lester and Judy-Lynn del Rey".
COVER TEXT:
It was a timeship, with three men and a woman on board. Without moving a micron in space, it had traveled from 2070 A.D. to 12,000 B.C. — a journey that could never be repeated.
For the three men and the woman, all anthropologists, it was once-in-a-million-lifetimes expedition... a chance to study primitive man as modern man never could.
But spending four years in another millennium was a complex proposition, especially when two of the principals were having marital problems. But, then, no one was prepared for the startling truths about themselves and their subjects ... or for the reverberations in a time that had yet to come!
(Del Rey Books)

The Canadian edition has exactly the same data as the US edition, it only states "Printed in Canada" on the copyright page. The cover wrongly states that the time travel happened in 2780 AD (actually 2070).
