About the Author
Elaine Morgan became a household name in 1972 with her first book, 'The Descent of Woman,' an instant best seller that has been translated into nine languages. Since then she has become increasingly absorbed in the subject of human evolution and two further books, 'The Aquatic Ape' and 'The Scars of Evolution,' received glowing reviews in the world's scientific press. She also contributed to 'The Aquatic Ape: Fact or Fiction?' and to a symposium on the Aquatic Ape Theory featured in the British Association for the Advancement of Science annual conference in 1992.
