Grade 6-10ASince the Stone Age, as defined here, covers a period of 2.5 million years, it is only possible to present a general survey, at best. Netzley describes the major epochs in the evolution of humans, as well as the development of stone-tool technology over time. The strength of this book is the author's objectivity and her refusal to sensationalize or speculate about life in Stone-Age societies. The author rightly points out that scientists disagree, sometimes vehemently, on what the often very scanty evidence can tell us about human life in that remote time. Average-to-good quality black-and-white photos, maps, and reproductions enhance the print information. This is a more scholarly and therefore less exciting title than Charles Higham's Life in the Old Stone Age (Lerner, 1977; o.p.), making it most suitable for reports. An excellent, up-to-date list for further reading is an additional advantage for researchers.ADavid N. Pauli, Missoula Public Library,
