Summary The uncovering of prehistory is probably the most dramatic chapter of natural history, full of incident and intrigue, as well as of human tragedy. If the evidence of prehistory is examined with the eye of the professional student it acquires an uncanny reality. It emerges from the museums, the cabinets of specimens and the libraries, dissipating the mists of ignorance that obscure the epochs of human and cultural evolution by which the fate of our world has been decided.
Contents Evidence of the flood -- The man who classified nature -- Links between man and beast -- Secrets of evolution -- The animal is the elder brother of man -- The history of the earth is written in catastrophe -- All life comes from the cell -- Human fossils do exist! -- The origin of species -- Nature's story of creation -- That which thy forefathers have bequeathed unto thee -- Artists of the ice age -- The dawn of humanity -- The prototype -- Prometheus and the giants -- The early cultures.
