Anthropologist Loren Eiseley turns his considerable powers of reflection and discovery on his own life to weave a compelling story, beginning with his childhood. From there he traces the odyssey that led to his search for early postglacial man-and into inspiriting philosophical territory-culminating in his uneasy achievement of world renown. Eiseley crafts an absorbing self-portrait of a man who has thought deeply about his place in society as well as humanity's place in the natural world.
