In the Footsteps of Eve  The Mystery of Human Origins, Berger, Lee R. & Brett Hilton-Barber
5 Berger, Lee R. & Brett Hilton-Barber In the Footsteps of Eve The Mystery of Human Origins
Washington, D. C. , National Geographic 2000 0792276825 / 9780792276821 First Edition (?) Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket

Covers are square and with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. "Paleoanthropology: " the very word sounds daunting, a dry-as-dust, arcane academic discipline -- but nothing could be further from the truth, as this fascinating and provocative book makes clear. In fact, the search for human origins is a passionate, vital pursuit, a world filled with larger-than-life personalities and intense rivalries, a field where sudden insights and imaginative leaps must be backed up by meticulous forensic reconstructions, and competing theories of our evolution may stand or fall on the evidence of a single, million-year-old fragment of bone. "In the Footsteps of Eve," with its carefully reasoned argument, challenges the conventional wisdom of half a century. It suggests that the true cradle of our species lies in the fossil-rich limestone of South Africa rather than in the East African sites where Louis and Mary Leakey revolutionized modern paleoanthropology and where Don Johanson made the discovery of the ancient skeleton immortalized as Lucy. Dr. Lee Berger, a leader of the new generation of scientists whose recent discoveries have reshaped our ideas about human genesis, is an expert and engaging guide who offers a detailed yet always clear and readable overview of the quest for our origins, from Darwin to the present day. He makes a persuasive case for redrawing our ancient family tree. ; Adventure Press; 9.36 X 6.41 X 1.07 inches; 304 pages

The Ascent of Man, Bronowski, Jacob
11 Bronowski, Jacob The Ascent of Man
Boston Little,brown & Co. 1973 Sixth Printing Hardcover Good+ in Very Good- dust jacket 
Unmarked. Mild wear on corners of dust jacket. Book shows some wear on corners. ; Book Description; Dust Jacket is intact and covered in protective (Demco) plastic film and paper. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. The Ascent of Man is nothing less than a full-scale history of science developed from the acclaimed thirteen-part BBC television series written by Jacob Bronowski, and traces the development of science as an expression of the special gifts that characterize man and that have made him unique among animal species. It journeys back through intellectual history in order to find 'the great monuments of human invention.' The author's informal history ranges throughout most of the western world, reaching into such out-of-the way places as Easter Island, Machu Picchu, Newton's library and Gauss's observatory, the Alhambra and the caves of Altamira. In each location, Bronowski considers the qualities of thought and imagination that compelled man first to analyze the physical world, and then to explore the invisible laws and structures above and beneath its surface. "Man ascends by discovering the fullness of his own gifts....what he creates on the way are monuments to the stages in his understanding of nature and of self." ; B&W Illustrations; 9.80 X 7 X 1.30 inches; 448 pages; B004OZ16QO

Peoples of the Sea Wind, Brown, Vinson
12 Brown, Vinson Peoples of the Sea Wind
New York MacMillan 1977 0025173006 / 9780025173002 Hardcover Good in Very Good- dust jacket 
Unmnarked internally, but contains library stamps on inside cover pages and on outside page edges. White dust jacke tis slightly soilded from use. Very well bound. ; Book Description; Dust Jacket is intact with protective (Demco) plastic film. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. Vinson Brown's book covers native peoples along the Pacific Coast from Alaska to California; it focuses on the Tlingit, Tsimshian, Kwakiutl, Nootka, and Salish of the Northwest Coast, and the Yurok. Hupa, Karok, Pomo, Chumash, and Tongva down through California. Maps, appendices, drawings, photographs, text along with line drawings and photographs providing both framework and background throughout the text; Brown has included extensive trait distribution lists in the appendix and elsewhere, thus embedding the focus of each culture. The text includes summaries of the cultures. The remainder presents interpretations of myths and folktales or fictional accounts of life based upon ethnography and social organization. It is also subtly organized. "The Year of the Tlingit," based upon Oberg's monthly cycle of activities, is written from the perspective of mythic figure: you learn of the Tlingit, as others on the West Coast,through characterizations. One learns from such accounts of the Tsimshian that there are slaves and that members of the tribe could advance by potlatching. Violence, potlatching, deception, and vigilance are practiced by Tsimshians, Kwakiutls, and Nootkas, one is told, as a principal psychological weapon against everyone's enemy: the Haida. Alaskan Eskimo and Nootka whaling are dramatically and convincingly portrayed by this projection into characters and situations. The California peoples appear placid by comparison with those of the Northwest Coast. Some unsettled issues are dealt with as though they were nonissues, such as Drucker's view of ranking and class: too much has been contested for this question to be approached as though settled; Ex-Library; B&W Photographs; 10 X 7 X 1 inches; 300 pages
