The Journey of Man: A Genetic Odyssey by Spencer Wells

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was actually a re-read of this book. I had forgotten how wonderful it is. If you have any interest in learning where you came from… and I don’t mean your distinct ancestors, but your lineage as a member of the species known as Homo sapiens, then read this book. It is very well written and understandable. It is truly the story of the journey of our species out of Africa 50,000 or so years ago.

I also recommend watching the television program from which this book came about. ->
