A Window into the Lives of Adam and Eve and Other Ancestors
Ancestors is a fascinating series of both biblical descriptions and behind-the-scenes glimpses into the lives of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, and on down the ancestral line to Noah and his family. Also revealed in each chapter are the lives of a rugged pioneering family making their way through much of the 1800s as part of one of the greatest human migrations in history.
Terry interestingly weaves together parallel narratives involving his pioneer ancestors and a retelling of the Genesis story. In doing so, both sets of ancestors are thus presented in a way that puts these peoples lives into a day-by-day perspective.

Even ancient theologican were conscious of the need to place Adam and Even in the garden of Eden, not Adam and Adam, in order to prevent humans from becoming extinct!
Socially, and legally, however, that did not hold true since the effects of social and legal organization around primogeniiture pretended that it was Adam and Adam, not Adam and Eve who were there.
Today, as if awakening from the deep sleep of Rip van Winkle, looking back, we can appreciate the faulty organization of a world that recognizes only men's rights in such things as education, economic progress, etc.
Placing women in such a "static frozen" system doesn't appear to be, in a pure sense, of what God intended by placing Adam and Eve there, however. We may be living in a social fantasy of extremely ancient origins.
