About this book

Tells the story of the man whose discovery of the `missing link' dramatically transformed the understanding of human origins. Dubois pulled off one of the most amazing scientific coups when he travelled to Java in 1891 and discovered the fossil known as homo erectus. Using Dubois' personal letters, diaries and photographs, Shipman reconstructs a life of betrayal, cruelty, and love that orbited around his precious fossils.
