Cro-Magnon: How the Ice Age Gave Birth to the First Modern Humans

Cro-Magnon: How the Ice Age Gave Birth to the First Modern Humans - Brian Fagan The story listens as if it is a romantic fiction novel. The author gives us plenty of information on early man (and neanderthal) life. If you were to listen to the story at random parts, you would probably think the story was a romantic fiction novel. Whenever a science book reads like fiction that makes the book flow marvelously. The author will often start his elucidation on a subject matter by saying "and how do we know that", and then explains how we think we know what was said. Typical examples representative of the time period are used to make the lives of the Cro-Magnon become vibrant through today's modern eyes.

I'm a sucker for prehistory books. This one makes the subject come alive and the reader adds an extra dimension to the story telling.
