Prehistoric: The Rise of Humans Summary

Prehistoric: The Rise of Humans by David West

In twelve beautifully crafted scenes, discover a world where a new kind of mammal has appeared from the disappearing forests and has begun to walk on two legs. From simple tool-making to mastering a control over fire, witness the evolution of our ancestors as they leave Africa and spread - taking over the world.

The two titles in this series, Prehistoric! are a wonderful exploration of an amazing period in pre-history. Plenty has been written about the dinosaurs but these books offer readers aged 7-9 the chance to develop wider historical interests.
