Schrire recounts the significance of the palaeontological findings of Raymond Dart, Robert Ardrey, and Glynn Isaac addressing a famous dispute about carnivore evolution that flourished in the heyday of apartheid. She sets pioneering exploration of the globe against archaeological surveys and romantic quests in the African desert and contrasts the dark days of colonial slavery at the Cape with the bright prospects of Nelson Mandelas legacy there.
