Best-selling author Brian Fagan brings early humans out of the deep freeze with his trademark mix of erudition, cutting-edge science, and vivid storytelling.
Cro-Magnon reveals human society in its infancy, facing enormous environmental challenges - including a rival species of humans, the Neanderthals. For ten millennia, Cro-Magnons lived side by side with Neanderthals, an encounter that Fagan fills with drama. Using their superior intellects and tools, these ingenious problem solvers survived harsh conditions that eventually extinguished their Neanderthal cousins.
Cro-Magnon captures the indomitable adaptability that has made Homo sapiens an unmatched success as a species. Living on a frozen continent with only the most basic tools, Ice Age humans survived and thrived.

Beyond the cave man
The title doesn't do Fagan's work justice - this book is equally about the demise of the Neanderthal, and Neanderthal life. Fagan offers an easily accessible overview of that time in human history when two types of humans populated Europe. James Langton adds to the story with his precise, clear narration, which sounds knowledgeable - without sounding pompous.
