Overview

From the emergence of the first hominids more than four million years ago to the evolution of modern humans, Walking with Cavemen takes us on a fascinating discovery of our primitive origins and behavior. Far more than just another examination of the fossil evidence, the significance of each hominid's characteristics is translated for the reader into a fascinating conjecture of how they mated, brought up their young, survived attack, and met the other challenges that affected them.

A companion piece to the TV special that is really more of a coffee table book than anything else. Lavish color pictures enhance the text, and frequent sidebars help to explain interesting concepts, but prove somewhat of a distraction and interruption of the text.

If you are interested in the way we humans have developed and interacted with the world since our beginings then this is the book for you. Very detailed and fascinating insight into human history.
