Delightful and ingenious stories from throughout the continent of Africa. A Gorgeous Collector's Edition of folk and fairy tales from the continent of sub-saharan Africa, with stories from regions now marked as modern nations such as Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi and Rwanda, who inherit the folk and mythic tales of ancient peoples. Here you'll find stories of ogres and tricksters, riddles and poems, and great heroes of history such as Liongo. This new collection is created for the modern reader. Flame Tree Collector's Editions present the foundations of speculative fiction, authors, myths and tales without which the imaginative literature of the twentieth century would not exist, bringing the best, most influential and most fascinating works into a striking and collectable library. Each book features a new introduction and a Glossary of Terms. AUTHOR: Jake Jackson has written, edited and contributed to over 20 books. Related works include studies of Babylonian creation myths, the philosophy to time and William Blake's use of mythology in his visionary literature.
