    Thousands of years after mankind has become extinct, a party of alien archaeologists try to learn the mysteries of mankind as they excavate in a gorge on Earth. This Hugo and Nebula Award winning novella by Mike Resnick is a gripping exploration of human origins and motivations.

    Eric C. Stover says: "Birthright"
    "Humans stink."

    If you hate humans, you'll love this book!

    When an eco-tourist is infected with the larvae of an ancient parasite, their effect on him is staggering. He becomes ill and dies, only to become resurrected hours later with his aging in rapid reverse. Better than any anti-aging treatment, his lined and brittle skin soon becomes smooth and supple, his thinning hair lush and full, his sagging body taut and slim once more.

    Overall

    All in all I enjoyed the book:
    Nitpicking...
    Seems though that the writer needs more research into Southern American culture, nobody, and I mean NOBODY in the US deep south calls a semi truck a "Lorrie!" I think a slip like that in the wrong Atlanta bar might end up in fight!

    Dont bother with the "Enhanced audio" version, its hissy (old tape?) and I cant imagine it sounds any better than "format 4"

    Also, the chapter break music was just a waste, the same four bars of contrived "suspense" music only slowed the pace down.
