Suggestions for Future Books

A former member
Post #: 4
I've thought about some books since last evening that may be of interest:

Beasts of Eden: Walking Whales, Dawn Horses, and Other Enigmas of Mammal Evolution by David Rains Wallace, 2004 (Paleontology, Mammalian Evolution)
- Provides good perspective on evolutionary change over deep time focusing on mammals rather than the usual dinosaurs. Good lead-in to human evolution.

The Neanderthal Enigma: Solving the Mystery of Human Origins by James Shreeve, 1995 (Fossil Dating, Genetic Research)
- Could serve as a good lead-in to the Smithsonian Intimate Guide to Human Origins by Carl Zimmer, 2007

Jamestown: The Buried Truth by William M. Kelso, 2006 (Archaeology, Sociology & [somewhat] Local History)
- A jump into more recent, historical time as a diversion from the ancient--but perhaps of interest to Virginians since many of us have visited Jamestown or could easily do so on a weekend.
