We are a fan group dedicated to Clare Bell's Books of the Named also known as the Ratha Series of young adult novels. The series takes place in Northern California during the early Miocene era and follows a clan of sentient prehistoric cats that call themselves The Named. The Named differentiate themselves from the non sentient Un-named cats outside of the clan by herding cattle, naming themselves and developing a complex culture.
The stories primarily focus on a female clan member named Ratha and the conflicts between herself, her people and the Un-Named.
There are currently five books in the series: Ratha's Creature, Clan Ground, Ratha and Thistle-chaser, Ratha's Challenge and Ratha's Courage.
Supplementary material include a short story called Ratha's Island, a short animation by CBS Storybreak, and a soon-to-be released graphic novel.
