About this book

Travel back 8 million years with Evolution: The Human Story and go on a fascinating journey to discover how our species has developed from tree-dwelling primates to modern humans. This is the first time that the story of evolution has been documented in such amazing visual detail thanks to the work of renowned Dutch paleoartists, Kennis and Kennis. Staggeringly realistic CGI and model reconstructions from original fossils bring us face to face with our ancestors portraying them as never before. Plus, Dr Alice Roberts shares her extensive knowledge helping answer all the big questions and more. Evolution: The Human Story is packed with all the latest discoveries and profiles every human ancestor to date from Ardipithecus ramidus to Homo neanderthalensis. It is an essential read for anyone fascinated in finding out where we come from.
