Rate this:
Long before the EPA required detailed records to be kept, people and proto-people were leaving their mark on the environment. Zoologist and science popularizer Tudge looks at the five million years in the middle of which our earliest recognizable ancestors appeared, describing the glaciers, colliding continents, fascinating creatures, and other factors that shaped human origins and early development. His detailed coverage extends to the beginning of farming, but he also surveys continuing impacts and peers into the next million years. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
