Our Family Tree: An Evolution Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Russian artists Igor Stravinsky and Vaslav Nijinsky were popular in their time: Stravinsky for music, Nijinsky for dance. When their radically new ballet, The Rite of Spring, was first performed in Paris on May 29, 1913, the reaction was so polarized, there were fistfights and riots! Brilliant or disastrous, the performance marked the birth of modern music and dance. Stringerand#8217;s rhythmic text and gloriously inventive, color-rich paintings capture the wild and imaginative collaboration of composer and choreographer. The fascinating author note includes photos of the dynamic duo and The Rite of Spring dancers.

Synopsis:

Complete with an illustrated timeline and glossary, here is the story of human evolution as it's never been told before.

Synopsis:

Composer Stravinsky and choreographer Nijinsky,and#160;Russian comrades,and#160;worked together to bring a very different and new ballet to a Parisian audience--and rioting filled the streets!

Synopsis:

You'll meet some of our oldest relatives--from both the land and the sea--and discover what we inherited from each of them along the many steps of our wondrous past.
