Walking with Cavemen: Stand Eye-to-Eye with your Ancestors is the companion book to the Walking with Cavemen TV series. This work of fiction depicts the world of human evolution in detail, from the time that the first australopithecines started walking on just their hind legs and became the forerunners to the first humans, to the time when the first Cro-Magnons emerged from Africa and began to take over the world due to the power of their ingenuity and imagination.
