The Journey of Man: A Genetic Odyssey

Front Cover
Princeton University Press, 2019 M04 9 - 240 pages
Los mas de seis mil millones de personas que hoy se encuentran diseminadas por todos los continentes son descendientes de tan solo diez mil individuos que hace 60.000 anos vivian recluidos en Africa. Y la poblacion nativa de America desciende de un grupo de quince o veinte personas que se animo a cruzar el estrecho de Bering poco antes del final de la era glacial. En este fascinante relato, Wells nos cuenta como la verdad acerca de nuestros ancestros se encuentra oculta en nuestro codigo genetico, y nos revela que si hubo un Adan y Eva reales; que todos los habitantes de hoy descendemos de ellos, y que la enorme variedad de tamanos, formas, tipos y razas se reduce a unas cuantas variables genericas con un origen comun. 4 colores por dentro

Review: The Journey of Man: A Genetic Odyssey

User Review  - Joe - Goodreads

Conclusion of Wells' work is that we're all descendants of a single man who lived in Africa about 20,000 years ago. And he is convincing! Very interesting book, with some genetic science thrown in to spice it up (but it doesn't get in the way). Read full review

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - snash - LibraryThing

The book presents a picture of man's migrations between 60,000 and 10,000 years ago. It is a companion book with the TV special and provides more background into the scientific rational of the study and its conclusions. It is presented in a manner quite understandable to the lay person. Read full review
