KIRKUS REVIEW

Here the story of civilization in approached through use of the tools of the ethnologists and anthropologists, and 50,000 years of evolution are compressed into lively, readable form. Man emerges from the days when he walked upright, discovered the use of flint and fire, on through the days of the hunter, the agriculturist, the artisan, to the days which produced different levels of culture and civilization. Perhaps little is new but the approach is fresh.
