Description

Something really strange happened 10,000 years ago, and it changed everything.

Why did millions of people agree to obey a few leaders?

Where did kings and kingdoms come from?

The answer to that is one of the strangest tales you’ll ever hear.

And it’s a true story.

Have you ever wondered how we got here?

From gathering berries and hunting mammoths, to shopping at supermarkets and letting people tell us what to do?

You might hear a lot of people say ‘the world isn’t fair’.

But why isn’t it?

And how did it become so?

In Unstoppable Us: Volume 1, we learned how humans told stories to become rulers of the world – for good and bad.

Now, in this next chapter of the incredible true tale of the Unstoppables, find out how we learned to control animals like dogs, chicken and cows…

And how a handful of humans learned to control everyone else.

With full-colour illustrations showing the relentless rise and rise of the human race, this is history like you’ve never experienced it before.
