Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors: A Search for Who We Are is a non-fiction book by the late Carl Sagan and his wife, Ann Druyan. First Published in 1993,[1] it gives a summary account of the evolutionary history of life on earth, with particular focus upon certain traits central to human nature and the discussion of where their precursors began to develop in other species. The final chapters examine primates in detail, comparing the details between anatomically modern humans and the extant species most closely related to them
