Summary
"Societies such as that of the New Guinea Highlanders remind us that it was only yesterday, in evolutionary time, when everything changed. [This book] provides a mesmerizing firsthand picture of human life as it had been for tens of thousands of years--a past that has mostly vanished--and considers what the differences between that past and our present mean for our own lives today"--from the publisher
