    Book recommends for overviews on the evolutionary history of the human animal?

    I'm looking for a specific type of book. I'm interested in kind of an anthropological history of the development and lives of pre-historical human beings, hunter-gatherers.

    Tristes Tropiques is a famous one. Some of the information is a little outdated but it's a good place to start.

    Also, Empire of the Summer Moon. It's about the Commanche nation. Easy read, fascinating history—especially the passages aobut their warfare tactics. Wouldn't want to meet those guys on the plains.

    Those are good recs. I've heard of Claud-Levi Strauss, but I'm more looking for a kind of compendium of knowledge on early proto-hominids leading all the way up to the very first civilizations. Theories of early hominids, their activities, and migrations, their eventual evolution into homo sapiens.
