Overview

Until the lions produce their own historians, the story of the hunt will glorify only the hunter.
This saying lamented by Albert Achebe, a renowned Igbo writer, leads the direction of this carefully researched book about the connections of the Igbo people and culture to their assumed ancestors, the Jews.
Godwin Akubue tackles the various areas that connect the Igbo people of Nigeria—customs, beliefs, genealogy, etymology, etc.—to their long lost brethren of the past following the Diaspora, which drove ten out of the twelve Israeli tribes out of the holy land.
In an unbiased manner, Akubue lays out every piece of evidence culled out from books, publications, speeches, and works of other people believing that the Igbo of Nigeria are descendants of the Jews.
Cow without Tail, by Godwin Boswell Akubue, is a treatise building the case of the lost tribe of Israel on their longed-for Jewry recognition.

    What a book ! Finally, we now have a book that captures almost everything that we have always suspected about Ebo people of Eastern Nigeria - industrious, enterprising and rebellious.
    Jewish suicidal rebellion was repeated by Ebo slaves at St. Simon's Island in Georgia .
    Holocaust against German Jews was repeated against Jews of Nigeria .
    I recommend this book to students of Jewish studies around the world.

    I agree with the last review regarding Jewish rebellion at Masad

    I agree with the last review regarding Jewish rebellion at Masada against the Romans. In fact , the emergence of West African Jews of the tribe of Gad(Igbo) ,one of the lost tribes of Israel , is strong proof to what Michael Brenner, a professor of Jewish history and culture at University of Munich , noted in his book in 1964 ,"A Short History of the Jews " . Wrote Prof. Brenner on page 8 of his book : " To this day numerous legends have circulated about the fate of these ten "lost tribes". Their descendants are supposed to have been spotted anywhere from East Asia to WEST AFRICA and South America". So, this is right thinking .Israel should make haste to welcome this remnant of Gad's tribe into the world Jewry as she did for the descendants of Dan (Falashas) from Ethiopia or Cush .

    Interesting & Persuasive ! Cow Without Tail speaks volumes

    Interesting & Persuasive !

    Cow Without Tail speaks volumes on the origin of Ibo tribe of Nigeria . Like the biblical genealogy of Eri, circumcision , male firstborn , Firstfruits and many more , this writer made a convincing case for Igbo Jewry . I am yet to read a more persuasive first book from a new writer that is so interesting and engaging as this . Thank you , Mr. Akubue for a job well done !

    Fact is that the Ibos can make allya to Israel on the basis of cultural genealogy . To do this means they will need rabbinic or conservative conversion from their present Christianity to normative Judaism..
    I don't the ibos doing that bcos they believe strongly in the risen Messiah. Maybe some of them will, but vast majority won't .Other than this, I join many others to welcome Ibos to Israel . this book by this writer is a strong proof to Igbo Hebrewism .I recommend it to all seekers of truth .

    What this book has done is to put paid to the agelong suspicion

    What this book has done is to put paid to the agelong suspicion of the Jewishness of this West African tribe in eastern Nigeria . Their religious names ,circumcision rites and so many cultural practices which I have observed by long associating with ibo folks say a lot about their connection to Israel . The biggest of their troubles is being hated and envied for their industry and enterprising spirit by the other two big tribes in Nigeria, just like the Jews.
