Quick Overview

Taken from a series which looks at prehistoric life, this book covers the evolution of the first people. The author explains the difficulties in understanding evolution, the various stages of development, primitive cultures, the use of tools and fire, hunting practices and music and art.


The "Prehistoric Life" series covers the whole of prehistory from the formation of the universe to the first settlements and begining of history. The six volumes follow on from each other chronologically and they provide the young reader with an introduction to such sujects such as the birth of the Earth, the reign of the dinosaurs, and the evolution of our present-day horses, elephants, apes and cats. This book looks at the evolution of the first people and at some aspects of their primitive cultures. Using simple language, the author explains for the young reader some of the difficultes faced by scientists trying to understand human evolution. He looks at various stages in the development of the first people and suggests why they developed in this way. He also looks the growth of their primitive cultures: the tools they produced, their use of fire, the way the mammoth hunters helped each other to catch their prey, and even their artistic and musical talents. The author has written several other books for Wayland, including titles in the "Great Disasters" and "Myths and Legends" series.
