    Covering the period between our ape ancestors' adoption of bipedalism and the beginnings of modern human culture and language, this readable, informative and well illustrated volume assembles photographic documentation of more than 200 remains of early hominids, including the famous 'Lucy' discovered by Johanson in 1974. This is preceded by an overview of the key issues in modern paleoanthropology, such as the dating of fossils, the definition of different human species and the analysis of the earliest art and stone tools.
