Until 10,000 years ago, all people on earth were nomads. (p.6)

 Today, many people on earth can get food easily. We can buy it at supermarket, online store and so on. However, people who lived 10,000 years ago couldn't buy food. They lived as hunter-gatherers. They move around to find food to eat. During warm weather they stay in one place. They gather fruits and vegetables and hunt wild animals. When the weather becomes colder, they move to warmer places to find more food. In this book, kinds of nomads are introduced. For example, the San. They lived completely off the land. They followed the same path every year to find food. If you are interested in nomads, please read it.

 I was surprised that all people on earth were nomads. After I read this book, I think that I don't want to be nomads.
