by C. A. P. Saucier
Amherst (NY): Prometheus Books, 2011. 136 pages.

Reviewer Tom Wanamaker writes, “Don Johanson is a major figure in the field of science and this book should give anyone, expert or beginner, a better appreciation of the man and his work. It would make a fine gift to a young aspiring fossil-hunter and a worthy addition to any school library.” He especially praises the book, aimed at readers ten and older, for its copious illustrations, the notes for further reading at the end of the chapters, and its descriptions of evolution and natural selection “at a level that is appropriate for any audience.”
