This is a summary of human evolution for general reading.

This is the first account, in a general work, of the huge jaw from Java and even huger teeth from China which make it apparent that there really were giants in those days. And Peking man, one of the most notable finds of all. Andrews not only knows the site well, but has known all who played important parts in the discovery. Yet even when he retells the older stories, they sound like eyewitness accounts. In fact, this book stands out from others of its kind not so much for what it says about our remote ancestors, but for what it tells of the adventure involved in finding what is left of them.
