Overview

Folklore, fairy tales and legends from Central Africa.


Like all human cultures, African folklore and religion represents a variety of social facets of the various cultures in Africa. These particular folktales are from Central African regions such as Uganda and the Congo, and they play an important role in many of these Central African cultures. Stories reflect a group's cultural identity, and preserving the stories of Africa helps to preserve many aspects of diverse and intriguing cultural groupings. Storytelling affirms pride and identity.


As ever with these fascinating collections, it has been a real journey of discovery working through tales and adapting them for today's early twenty-first century audience. The journey is utterly rewarding, with so many delightfully entertaining, poignant and instructional facets to take into account. I do hope you enjoy these tales as much as I do.

About the Author

I was born in 1962 into a predominantly sporting household - Dad being a good footballer, playing senior amateur and lower league professional football in England, as well as running a series of private businesses in partnership with mum, herself an accomplished and medal winning dancer.I obtained a degree in History from Leeds University before wandering rather haphazardly into the emerging world of business computing in the late nineteen-eighties.A little like my sporting father, I followed a succession of amateur writing paths alongside my career in technology, including working as a freelance journalist and book reviewer, my one claim to fame being a by-line in a national newspaper in the UK, The Sunday People. I also spent 10 years treading the boards, appearing all over the south of the UK in pantos and plays, in village halls and occasionally on the stage of a professional theatre or two.Following the sporting theme, and a while after I hung up my own boots, I worked on live TV broadcasts for the BBC, ITV, TVNZ, EuroSport and others as a rugby "Stato", covering Heineken Cups, Six Nations, IRB World Sevens and IRB World Cups in the late '90's and early '00's.I try to combine my love of storytelling with a passion for information technology, and am currently Vice President - Technology with a major UK FinTech company.You can find out more about my work and contact me at: https://www.clivegilson.com
