Dr. Dada compiled this selection of folktales at a time when the Western world was curious to know more about the traditional African cultures in the newly independent nations often referred to as the dark continent. As with all folktales, their deceptive simplicity cloaks carefully crafted narratives about universal moral dilemmas. Whether they are amusing, tragic, or seemingly unfinished, they are timeless mirrors of reality. They invite thoughtful reflection about life’s challenges and choices for those willing to ponder beneath the surface. The author hopes you will enjoy these stories and discover their relevance and lessons for twenty-first-century folks.
