African Mythologyby Linda Jacobs Jacobs Altman, William Sauts Bock
Long before they were written down, African myths were kept alive by a strong oral tradition. Today, these stories provide a rich understanding of the cultures that created these fascinating tales. In African Mythology, author Linda Jacobs Altman weaves together traditional tales from seven different cultural groups, including those of Nigeria, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, the Kalahari, and Ghana. She focuses on the distinctions, as well as the similarities, among their lifestyles and legacies. Wonderful illustrations and question-and-answer sections are included.
