A Different Flesh Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of A Different Flesh

The first English colonists reach the North Americas, but they don't find Indians-only Pleistocene mammals and subhuman anthropoids(Homo erectus), which they call 'sims'. The moral implications of this discovery unfold for the next three hundred and fifty years, mostly for the better but not always for the best.
