Has anyone else read the Geodyssey Series by Piers Anthony. I have read the first 3 and am just starting the fourth book. I found all of them in the bargain book section over the last few years.

Isle of Woman
Shame of Man
Hope of Earth
Muse of Art
(I hear there is a fifth one that's in the works)

They are pretty cool in that they take the same characters and advance them through the course of human history (and prehistory). The same character will be a homo-erectus in one chapter, then progress on to a tribal nomad then maybe somewhere in the roman empire and so on up through current time and then into the near future. Each chapter has a little prologue on what was happening with humanity at the time. They are pretty cool books, not the greatest ever written, but fun to read.
