From the Publisher
"It is a stunning collection of photographs taken by Betty Press while she lived and traveled in Africa. In proverbs, philosophy and poetry have a fine marriage. Such is the relationship between Press's black-and-white photographs and the proverbs that root these images in our collective mind and spirit. . . .The power of this collection is that we are able to see the engaging images of the heirs of this wisdom and hear the voices of continuity, identity, and legacy that affirm their communal spirit."
--Joanne Veal Gabbin, James Madison University
"Press's images of Africa are timeless, immediate and personally authentic. . . .The proverbs accompany, expand, and ground the pictures."
--Alison Nordström, curator of photographs, George Eastman House
