Thanks to the generous folks at
Hachette Book Group,
I have been authorized to
 give away three (3) copies of
THE LINK
by Colin Tudge.

Description (from the publisher):
For more than a century, scientists have raced to unravel the human family tree and have grappled with its complications. Now, with an astonishing new discovery, everything we thought we knew about primate origins could change. Lying inside a high-security vault, deep within the heart of one of the world's leading natural history museums, is the scientific find of a lifetime - a perfectly fossilized early primate, older than the previously most famous primate fossil, Lucy, by forty-four million years.



About the author (from the publisher):
Colin Tudge is a biologist by education and a writer by inclination--on biology, food and agriculture, and the philosophy of science. His books include The Tree, Feeding People Is Easy, Consider the Birds, and The Time Before History. For more information about the author, go to http://www.colintudge.com/.

This is a topic I have been fascinated with since high school. I have the book on Lucy and have been following the discoveries as they have happened over the years. This new discovery is incredible. I would love to win this book so I can find out more about what they have discovered. Our little library here does not have it, nor will they be getting it.
