«A very important book that shows how non-literate people preserved their observations of memorable events for as much as ten millennia, and their recollections can also help us to face the challenges of environmental changes today.»

Rita Compatangelo-Soussignan, Professor of Ancient History at Le Mans University, France

«In this sweeping, masterful volume, Nunn stitches together evidence from geology, anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, history and geography to bring to our collective attention the many durable myths and legends of Indigenous oral traditions. If you care about the future of the planet, and our survival on it, The Edge of Memory is a must-read book.»

Chris Gibson, Editor-in-Chief, Australian Geographer, and Professor of Geography, University of Woll

«Nunn’s book is the newest jewel in the recent chain of research showing, through geological verification, that human oral traditions often record real events back 10,000 years and more. He shows that such ancient fact-bearing stories, usually dismissed as “just myths”, occur the world around. The book is an engagingly written must-read: I couldn’t put it down.»

Elizabeth Wayland Barber, co-author of When They Severed Earth from Sky: How the Human Mind Shapes M
