About this book

For roughly 99% of their existence on Earth, Homo sapiens lived as small bands of hunter-gatherers in societies that appear to have solved problems of production, distribution, social equity, and environmental sustainability that our own culture seems incapable of addressing. This book examines the hunter-gatherer society and lifestyle, providing a brief introduction to the rich literature on non-agricultural societies.
