This was a very interesting listen about the author's experience with some of the most isolated humans in modern times. It provides some understanding of how our ancestors probably lived thousands of years ago. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in anthropology or evolution to gain a better sense of our common heritage.

Although I have not read the text version, I imagine that listening to the author narrate this book adds to the flavor and beauty of this description of the lives of African Kalahari people in their indigenous state and their 21st Century status. The author/narrator is able to give authenticity to her prose by adding the click sounds to the words and names from her subjects' language that she includes in the narration. I simply enjoyed and learned from every sentence Ms. Marshall-Thomas generated, especially her description of her day spent foraging for food with the women of the group she studied.
At all levels this book is excellent.
