Publisher Comments:

With unparalleled wit, clarity, and intelligence, Richard Dawkins, one of the world's most renowned evolutionary biologists, has introduced countless readers to the wonders of science in works such as The Selfish Gene. Now, in The Ancestor's Tale, Dawkins offers a masterwork: an exhilarating reverse tour through evolution, from present-day humans back to the microbial beginnings of life four billion years ago. Throughout the journey Dawkins spins entertaining, insightful stories and sheds light on topics such as speciation, sexual selection, and extinction. The Ancestor's Tale is at once an essential education in evolutionary theory and a riveting read.

Richard Dawkins is one of the world's best known science writers. In this authoritative book he looks at the history of life, exploring evolutionary biology. He journeys back into our past creating life-like reconstructions of our common ancestors. "One of the richest accounts of evolution ever written" "Financial Times"
