There’s a book called, Real Eve: Modern Man's Journey Out Of Africa, which talks about the migration of the mankind and then the appearance of new languages.
If we take the Latin by example, we can see that new languages arise as people move around. Latin started in Italy, as people were moving along to the western part of Europe new languages like French, Spanish and later Portuguese were created.
Also, there’s a series called, The History of Human Language by Teaching Company, I bought those DVDs and it explains how one language became the 6000 we have today.
I hope it helps,
