Dem bones, dem bones

The remains of hominins – or early humans – can tell many tales about how they lived and how they died.  The better preserved the remains, the more stories to be unveiled.  In this nonfiction book, the reader is taken from through the processes of discovery of four well known hominin remains, deductions based on evidence uncovered and debates about what was revealed.

The information was interesting and accessible.  Lots of great pictures. 


Thickness of the paper made it seem like I was turning several pages at a time. 

This was on the shortlist for the 2011 YALSA Non-Fiction award.
