This tiny, heavily illustrated book is packed with info. and curated like a mini-museum of early Chinese history. It's good as a handbag companion for tours of China for amplifying the context of museums or sites. The writing is tiny, and curves around pictures all over the pages. It gives a tour around the country, but partly in the order of when things were discovered. Little features on major archaeologists and appendix-like excerpts from their writings give a flavor of the evolution in thinking about China's prehistory. --author of A Galaxy of Immortal Women: The Yin Side of Chinese Civilization
