Robert Ardrey guides the listener on a remarkable journey of discovery through 20 million years of man's prehistory: from the days when his ancestors first emerged from the forests of Africa during the benevolent warmth and rains of the Miocene, through the unremitting drought of the Pliocene and the dramatic climactic shifts of the Pleistocene, down to those few thousand years past when man emerged at last onto the stage of recorded history as a fully evolved hunting animal.

Even though his conclusions on industrial pollution as being a factor in climate change are the opposite of what is going on today, (a perspective I'm sure he would have revised given the data we have now) this book is a total gem...
I've read many books on similar subject matters but none connects the dots of what makes us, us as well as Ardrey. Particularly how our hunting history played such a big role in the formation of thought, cooperation and culture as we know it.
