Become acquainted with our next of kin—past and present. Learn how and why early hominids left Africa. Find out what happened to other species of humans and discover what changes occurred to create the one human species that remains today. Contemplate the future of a species that now has the ability and the means to manipulate its own evolution.

Wonderfully written and lavishly illustrated with photographs and drawings (including imaginary scenes from everyday prehistoric life), this book is an excellent choice for school and classroom libraries. 2004, National Geographic Society, Ages 9 to 15.
