"(Language Arts, The National Council of Teachers of English) With the current evidence, scientists are almost certain that our first human ancestors came from Africa. The evidence - fossils, tools, and other artifacts of the earliest humans and pre-humans - was discovered on the African continent. Alice Schertle takes this compelling evidence and deftly weaves a poetic story of human evolution... Kenneth Addison's vivid mixed media collages complement the cadence of Schertle's text that builds on each new discovery or exploration underlying our advancement above and below ground, below the seas, in the skies and space. The story neatly returns to the original African discovery site to show us that making new discoveries and exploring the lives of the first humans is an exciting and continuous process."
