Description
Information
Around 60,000 years ago, a man walked the soil of Africa. Every person alive today is descended from him. How did he come to be the father to all of us - a real-life Adam?

The answer, as Spencer Wells shows, is hidden in our genetic code. It enables us not just to discover where our ancestors lived (and who they may have fought, loved and learned from) but to create a family tree for the whole of humanity.

'The Journey Of Man' reveals, among other things, how we evolved into such a huge variety of sizes, shapes and races; how humanity spread from Africa to the far corners of the earth; and who the real Adam and Eve were.

This enthralling tour through our shared history provides answers to questions which, in an age obsessed by who we are and where we really came from, are more compelling than ever.
