Item description for Hunters and Gatherers Book One: The Neolithic People by Joe Deriu...
The hatred between two brothers, Huyuk and Krot, leads to a split among the people in Uro's village. Along with a group of other hunters and gatherers, Huyuk leaves to found their own village. Their quest is to improve their way of life. They fight battles with ferocious beasts, killing them or driving them away from the land they regard as their domain. Guided by Huyuk and his mate Catal, the people search for others, to learn from them and exchange ideas. In a very short time, their little village grows and prospers. Krot, however, is envious of his brother's success, and his cruel nature prevails over him, thus bringing to his people murder and misery. Author Bio- Joe Deriu was born on the island of Sardinia, Italy. He spent his youth playing among the buildings, now ruins, built by the ancients and was fascinated by the ingenuity of such builders so long ago. Round, conical buildings of 15-20 metres high and almost just as wide of huge, unworked boulders fitted in a tight, precise manner to form such structures that had been up since the time of Stonehenge and the Pyramids. Joe explored the ancient's houses and the curiosity to know more about them never left him. In 1957, he migrated to Australia where he worked as a carpenter builder, learning the English language from his Australian mates at the building sites. He married Marisa and together brought up a family of two daughters, Laura and Susanna, and their son John. Joe has read extensively any subject regarding prehistory in the development of the civilization of humankind. Now retired, he is trying to put his ideas into words of how it all began. Joe's motto is an old saying: 'If you don't know from where you came, you cannot know where you are going'.
