1st Reprint. [First: Same Year] From the cover: “From this premise, supported by the accumulated research and observations of two decades of anthropological investigation, Robert Ardrey guides the reader on a remarkable journey of discovery through twenty million years of man’s prehistory: from the days when his ancestors first emerged from their arboreal home in the forests of Africa during the benevolent warmth and rains of the Miocene, through the unremitting drought of the Pliocene, through the dramatic climactic shifts of the Pleistocene, down to those few thousand years past when man emerged at last on to the stage of recorded history, a fully evolved hunting animal. Ardrey explores the crises man has met and overcome along the way — the depredations of larger predators, scant food supplies, prolonged drought, severe ice ages — and speculates on those characteristics of man that have enabled him not only to survive, but to thrive, to populate and ultimately to control even the most inhospitable corners of the globe.”
