My good friend and writer, Jacqui Murray, is launching her newest book in the series The Crossroads Trilogy. I am happy to present to you today, information and details of Book 1, Survival of the Fittest. I am looking very much to reading Jacqui’s latest tome, and judging by the cover, and having read the blurb and the chapter sample, its looks to be an amazing read.
Enough from me, go ahead and peruse!
Most scientists believe Homo erectus couldn’t talk. How did Xhosa and her People communicate?
These early humans were highly intelligent for their day and possessed rich communication skills but rarely verbal. Most paleoanthropologists believe that the ‘speaking’ part of their brain wasn’t evolved enough for speech but there’s another reason: Talking is noisy as well as unnatural in nature which attracts attention. For these early humans, who were far from the alpha in the food chain, being noticed wasn’t good.
Instead, they communicated with gestures, facial expressions, movements, and all the body language we-all still use but rarely recognize. They talked to each other about everything necessary, just non-verbally.
