KIRKUS REVIEW

A simplified version of the fascinating stories of early man and the evolution of tools and living habits, with gay little abstract sketches to clarify the text, by Marie Neurath. There is a glimpse of the world before man, a general view of how man has changed his condition and then the beginnings of the use of fire, the struggle for food, the domestication of animals, cooking, development of tools and a fascinating theory about the beginnings of agriculture. No attempt is made to place each change in its exact era -- and the construction in clear and lucid.
