There may be no subject more interesting than the mystery of human origins. In this four-book series we step back in time- back so many years that it is hard to grasp the distance-to explore our roots. Amazingly, for most of the millions of years that people have been around, there was more than one species of human in the world. Today we, Homo sapiens, are the only species of human on earth. How did we become what we are today, and who were our ancestors and cousins in the human family tree?
Describes the search for the earliest human ancestors, from ancient apes to the australopiths.
