Come face to face with our ancestors
Travel back 8 million years with Evolution The Human Story and go on a fascinating journey to discover how our species has developed from tree-dwelling primates to modern humans.
This is the first time that the story of evolution has been documented in such amazing visual detail thanks to the work of the renowned Dutch paleoartists, Kennis and Kennis. Staggeringly realistic CGI and model reconstructions from original fossils bring us face to face with our distant ancestors portraying them as never before. Plus, Dr Alice Roberts shares her extensive knowledge helping answer all the big questions and more.
Evolution: The Human Story is packed with all the latest discoveries and profiles every human ancestor to date from Ardipithecus ramidus to Homo neanderthalensis. An essential read for anyone fascinated in finding out where we come from.
Review by: Kerry Black, 23 November 2011
'Dr Alice Roberts may have her name on the cover of this book but there is no doubt in my mind that the real success of this book lies in the talented hands of the Kennis bothers. Melding fossils with forensic science, their unique talent as paleoartists bring her ideas to life in an uncanny manner. From century to century, from continent to continent, they add flesh to her theories, putting faces on her facts. A stunning book which Darwin would have been proud to put his name to. Dorling Kindersley succeeds once again in making education entertaining without the dreaded dumbing down!'
