Man Who Found the Missing Link
Eugene Dubois and His Lifelong Quest to Prove Darwin RightBook - 2001
Born eighteen months after the first Neanderthal skeleton was found and a year before Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species , Eugene Dubois vowed to discover a powerful truth in Darwin's deceptively simple ideas. There is a link, he declared, a link as yet unknown, between apes and Man. It takes a brilliant writer to elucidate a brilliant mind, and Pat Shipman shines as never before. The Man Who Found the Missing Link is an irresistible tale of adventure, scientific daring, and a strange and enduring love--and it is true.
