1 JOHANSON, DONALD C. and, EDEY, MAITLAND A. Lucy. The beginnings of humankind.
New York Simon & Schuster 1981 0671250361 / 9780671250362 Hard Cover 
409 pages, 4 color plates, 32 black-and-white photographs and 142 line drawings, diagrams, charts, maps, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj. When Donald Johanson found a partial skeleton, approximately 3.5 million yars old, in the remote Afar region of Theiopia in November of 1974, he knew he had stumbled onto something unique. Bursting with all the suspense and intrigue of a fast-paced adventure novel, and filled with lively, up-to-the-minute scientific detail and marvelous illustrations in color and black-and-white, this major new book unfolds the extraordinary story of Johanson's discovery of 'Lucy' - the oldest, most complete, best-preserved skeleton of any erect-walking human ancester ever found, and the first new species to be named in more than 15 years; reveals the controversial change Lucy makes in our view of human origins; and provides a vivid, behind-the-scenes account of the entire history of paleoanthropology - and the eccentric, colorful characters who are and were a part of it.
