A young man in modern America is terrorised by visions of an earlier, primitive life. Across the enormous chasm of thousands of centuries, his consciousness has become entwined with that of Big-Tooth, an ancestor living at the dawn of humanity. Big-Tooth makes his home in Pleistocene Africa, a ferocious, fascinating younger world torn by incessant conflict between early humans and proto-humans. "Before Adam" is a remarkable and provocative tale that thrust evolution further into the public spotlight in the early twentieth century and has since become a milestone of speculative fiction. The brilliance of this book lies not only in its telling but also in its imaginative projection of a mindset for early humans. Capitalising on his recognised ability to understand animals, Jack London paints an arresting and dark portrait of how our distant ancestors thought about themselves and their world. This commemorative edition features a map of the world of Big-Tooth, an epilogue by Loren Eiseley, striking illustrations by Charles Livingston Bull, contemporary reviews, and a listing of peoples and characters.Jack London (1876-1916) is the author of such classics as "Fantastic Tales" (also available in a Bison Frontiers of Imagination edition), "Call of the Wild", and "White Fang". Dennis L. McKiernan is an acclaimed fantasy author whose popular novels of Mithgar include the "Hel's Crucible" duology and "Silver Wolf, Black Falcon". Loren Eiseley's works include "All the Strange Hours", "The Night Country", "The Invisible Pyramid", and "The Firmament of Time", all available in Bison Books editions.
