Reviews

A vivid picture of the nautical experiences endured by the first sailors who, in tiny canoes and rafts, made astonishing ocean-wide journeys more than 50,000 years ago and who laid the planet open to human conquest * Robin McKie, Observer * He is a beguiling writer and his lessons from global experience are both refreshing and sobering * Daily Express [on Elixir] * In addition to his solid research, he has unearthed a variety of entertainingly off-piste anecdotes ... These stories provide welcome glimpses of humanity in a narrative spanning centuries * Daily Telegraph [on Elixir] * Fagan is probably the world's most widely read archaeologist...fascinating...Once again, Brian Fagan has given us a gem of a book * Mail on Sunday [on Elixir] *
