Review: Lucy: The Beginnings of Humankind

User Review  - Dylan - Goodreads

I had to read this for my biological anthropology course (which I recommend taking if you can) and I think that it was fairly enjoyable all things considered. There were some nice pictures and useful information. If you're interested in the subject this would be a good book to read. Read full review

Read this 30 years ago, but still remember it was a wonderful book about the discovery of australopithecus. Anyone interested in physical anthropology will enjoy it. Read full review
