Telling the full story of our origins, Apeman explains, with the help of state-of-the-art graphics, how we developed from apes into what we are today - the most sophisticated animal on the planet. Scientific fact is made accessible with a dramatic narrative, which is interspersed with stunning pictures and informative box spreads. The book, like the series, will include the following enthralling and important elements: the first 'human' footprint left 3.6 million years ago; a portrait of Homo Erectus, our first true ancestor who lived 1.8 million years ago; the migration of Homo Erectus out of Africa, to dominate the world; the radical redrawing of European man's family tree; DNA evidence of the surprising interbreeding which occurred as the first humans evolved; the future of human evolution. For the first humans themselves, it is a story of tragedy, brutality, beauty and unrelenting struggle. For the scientists who have followed their four-million-year trial, it is an epic adventure with all the characteristics of the best detective stories, as they have pieced together the sensational truth about our origins..
