| This is a window into the intimate daily lives of tribal peoples in the interior of this West African country, and a time capsule into a time before everything was changed by twenty years of civil wars. It is more than the experiences of American children living abroad, and a familys learning about a foreign culture they live in the midst. This is an in depth glimpse into the deep interior of a region almost unknown to most people. Even to this day, when any referral is made to this country, nothing is said about the interior and its people. These personal stories bring the reader into the villages, where ancient tribal rituals and myths exist as they have for centuries, and no outsiders have ever seen before or since. Many of the indigenous villagers and their children had never before seen a white person. This journey chronicles the stories of a six-year old boy, and his personal relationship with the children he befriends, and his integration into a culture he embraces Item Dimensions: 6" L x 0.28" W x 9" H |
