Once Upon a Time in Ghana: Traditional Ewe Stories Retold in English
by Anna Cottrell

This book was recommended by Yuki Davis of Bristol.  She says,  "A beautifully crafted collection of traditional Ghanaian stories, this book was a pleasure to read.  On my recent visit to Ghana, I stayed in an area of the Ewe people, and now upon returning home, it is interesting to read the driving force behind these people's beliefs.  Though seemingly childish and simple, these stories passed through generations hold a much deeper meaning, teaching of values that we should all implement in our daily lives."

This book is available upstairs in the One World Library at Lawrence Memorial Library.
