Unusually this is an non-fiction Carnegie winner. As an information book for children it was radical for its time and includes chapters on evolution, Darwin, Geology and fossils. In his conclusion Dr Cornwall says 'Man now stands alone indeed, on a pinnacle of his own contriving, from which it would be only too easy for him to fall.'
Dr Cornwall's published books for adults include 'Pleistocene and Holocene Sections in Deposits of the Lower Thames', 'Soils for the Archaeologist' and 'Thin Sectons of British Neolithic Pottery: Windmill Hill - A Test-Site'.
