Nature’s Gifts: why we are the way we are by Wilmot James

With examples from Africa, especially South Africa, Wilmot James draws on established biological science to tell some compelling stories about the genome, why we have different skin colours, how blood tells a special story of human history, why the brain likes music, how smell works, the nature of rock art, why kids love bugs and the teaching of evolution. The book is based on the fact that there is one unified science with extraordinary powers of interpretation.
