Description

This masterful addition illuminates a vast and ancient tradition of story telling across the African continent. Drawing on sources that range from the notes of the earliest missionaries to the most recent works of anthropologists and ethnographers, Roger Abrahams renders nearly one hundred stories in a voice evoking the unique, dramatic roots in the song, dance, and ritual performance of the African world.
