Distinctly Human, An Evolutionary Journey, is the journey from our pre-primate ancestry, through to pre-human ancestry along with other lineages that have come before us. Lineages that have thrived, then died out due to climatic and environmental changes that helped shape the Human of today.
This is finally us, physically the result of three million years of evolutionary change since the first true human species, Australopithecus afarensis (Lucy). Over three hundred thousand generations and eight million years since the first primate ancestor. We are now fully human.
Distinctly Human, An Evolutionary Journey follows that journey. The journey that made us, Distinctly Human.

About the Author
Born in Wellington, New Zealand in 1958, Bruce was the only son of a former college instructor. His mother was born in Britain and immigrated to New Zealand when she was 21. She encouraged Bruce and his three sisters to read often and study hard in school, and when it became clear that Bruce had an affinity for science, she encouraged that too.
Bruce's key interests revolve around the Earth and the life that inhabits it: how it sprang up, how it's come to be the way it is, how it functions now, etc. In addition to his work as a writer, Bruce is employed in the health support industry. He has two children, one son and one daughter, both of whom are grown up.
