About the Book

"In his New York times bestseller, Lucy: the beginnings of humankind, renowned paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson told the incredible story of his discovery of a partial female skeleton that revolutionized the study of human origins. Since that dramatic find in 1974, there has been heated debate and more groundbreaking research--including the discovery of Ardi--that have further transformed our understanding of when and how humans evolved"--Cover p. 4.
