it was amazing

This book, and his "People of the Lake" led me to a lifelong study of Anthropology. He is a fascinating man, and I was lucky enough to hear him speak (and then talk with him) after a speech he gave at UNM in the 1990s. Whether discussing human culture, hominid evolution, or the fate of the elephants of Kenya, Leakey personifies dignified grace and curious intellect. A hero of mine. Read this book and he may be a hero of yours, as well.
