Illustrated in full color, this story of scientific sleuthing invites us to wonder what our ancestors were like. From the discovery of Lucy's bones in Hadar, Ethiopia, to the process of recovering and interpreting them, this book shows how a pile of 47 bones led scientists to discover a new--and, at 3.2 million years old, a very very old--species of hominid, ancestral to humans.
