Great painting for that cover James Gurney. Are humans especially related to squirrels more so than other mammals?

Bob, I'm not sure where they got that title line. I don't think they meant that human ancestors came from the Volaticotherium—I think they meant a broader "We."

I love your cover and it sounds fascinating!
