It explores the question, “what would happen if we were able to make a hybrid between a human and a chimpanzee?” How would society, scientists, and the media react? In Hominin, the hybrids are not only created, they end up on the loose among us and create havoc. Dr. Samson Samuels, a once renowned-but-discredited primatologist, joins forces with veterinarian Clare Carpenter to try to capture the hybrids before others can kill them. And in the process, Samuels’ young daughter Lilly becomes the key to saving not only the hybrids but their protectors as well.The author is a primatologist with many years experience studying wild chimpanzees, and he uses those observations to construct a realistic picture of the hybrids, their behavior and their minds. If you have looked at a chimp in the zoo and wondered what he is thinking, or if you’ve ever wondered how much humanness there is in that ape, then you’ll find Hominin thrilling.
