Richard Dawkins: "The Ancestor's Tale"


The Ancestor's Tale: A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Life One of Dawkins's best: a big, almost encyclopedic compendium bursting with information and ideas. Dawkins ... the consummate zoologist ... leads a grand tour of all surviving 'pilgrims' to a 'Canterbury' representing the very origin of life--and what a fantastic trip it is...The panorama is splendid but it's the details...that delight, and also exhibit some of Dawkins's best writing. Kirkus
Dawkins's new book, which is fabulous in many more ways than one, is a picaresque account of evolution running in reverse as a series of wondrous tales of explanation. John Cornwell, The Sunday Times
In The Ancestors Tale Dawkins traces back human ancestry 4bn years to the dawn of life on Earth. The result is one of the richest accounts of evolution ever written.
