Many millions of species have existed in Earth’s past. What distinguishes those which survive like humanity and those who don’t survive?
And what is it about Man’s ability to survive which has made us the dominant mammals on Earth?
In this book we look at the things man has done uniquely to succeed. This includes the use of fire for all of our existence as Home Sapiens and much of our history as hominids.
How have we survived floods, the ice age, huge volcanos and other disasters? And what about the development of weapons which made us better able to conquer other predators and provide food in a much better way?
The combination of fire and weapons has given us an incredible edge in the survival of our species. Domesticated Animals and Plants also gave people a huge advantage in survival.
This book examines what we know about human survival over the ages and how it has led us to where we are today.
