In the Footsteps of Eve: The Mystery o/Berger, Lee R./Paper/0792277287/S053-C1
A footprint in the sand is the very definition of impermanence, but this one was 117,000 years old. Fossilized into sandstone just yards from a South African public beach, it would become the first step in a fascinating scientific journey that has led to a bold new theory of human evolution. In this provocative and persuasive book, a brilliant young paleontologist marshals a powerful argument for an idea that could redraw our ancient family tree.
In the Footsteps of Eve sweeps across millions of years of deep history, offering an extraordinary panorama of our long ascent from ape to modern human. It explains exactly what we know and how we know it and introduces all the major figures, theories, and techniques of paleontology today. Part Darwin, part detective story, this in an engrossing, articulate, important contribution to our understanding of ourselves and our origins.
