Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
YA-Visually formatted in short text blocks surrounded with images, the major theories, personalities, and issues surrounding early humans are accurately presented. Brief explanations of how theories changed through time, as new evidence was unearthed, and as scientific observations conflicted with biblical creationism are given. Extensive use of photographs, diagrams, drawings, and maps reinforce the text. Copies of several key primary-source documents from the evolution debate are included. While not an end-all resource on the topic, this volume can be used to introduce the major players, and show why they were important. The various theories and issues are presented with reference to the relevant social and scientific historical background. The size and format will appeal to YAs who experienced the "Eyewitness" books at a younger age.-Beth Devers, Johnson County Public Library, IN
