The world hovers on the brink of disaster as the nations of the Indian sub-continent rattle their nuclear sabres. Meanwhile, high in the Himalayas, in an almost inaccessible mountain cave, a discovery is made which will change forever mankind's sense of itself.
Prompted by the find, a brilliant young American anthropologist leads her team to the Himalayas. There she encounters a living link with humanity's origins: a tribe of man-like, ape-like beings, who, despite their placid nature, have inspired the legends of the Abominable Snowman.
Almost as soon as they are discovered, man's gentle cousins are in mortal danger of exploitation and perhaps extinction. U.S. Security forces take a predatory interest in the valley which has sheltered the creatures for thousands of years. Who will triumph in this riveting tale of international politics, deadly technology, heart-stopping adventure and simple humanity?

This is a very likable book. Kerr writes a very exciting and believable story dealing with an entity like the abominable snowman. It's easy to follow even with some technical jargon. Take thrill-seeking, paleoanthropology, a group of well-defined characters, and Yeti...mix them together, and you get an enjoyable read in 'Esau'.
This is the only book by Kerr that I have read and it was fantastic. I thought I knew what to expect after reading the preview in the sleeve, but there was so much more to it. I love books about paleontology and this one is right up there. To make the story plausible requires the reader to take a leap of faith. Do it. It's worth it!!
