Ouwangalaymah!: The

Ouwangalaymah!: The "Tail" of the Name of the Tree

by Samuel Edwin Kirkman




Attention Deficit-Hyperactive Disorder meets the classic anthropomorphic Bantu tale and they have a baby. That's the short description of Ouwangalaymah! The "Tail" of the Name of the Tree.

It's a tale that begins when everyone forgets; the name of the tree that is.

Yofti, a young ringtail Lemur deals with issues that arise from his impetuous, hyperactive nature. Forced to face the consequences of his actions, he winds up saving the day with a little help from his friend, a rather persistent Tortoise, an Eagle, and a wise (ass) one who lives beyond the dark forest, across the burning desert sands, and way up on the steep high mountain. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and in the end, you will probably forget just like everyone else has. The name of the tree I mean.

The facts have been changed to assuage the author who loves Ringtail Lemurs and wanted them in his story. I mean if you can accept talking animals, then you should be able to embrace a displaced family of mammals! And the facts aren't too far off. Check out this article from NPR
