The renowned anthropologist offers an incisive, inside look at her remarkable family and discusses her work with her husband in East Africa and their discoveries, when forever altered the course of modern anthropology. In the summer of 1935, during her first visit to East Africa, Mary Leakey, then just 22 years old, drove down the rocky flank of Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania and found herself gazing spellbound at a view that was to come to mean more to her than any other in the world.
