Publisher Description

African History For Beginners explores the rich history of this continent of contrasts. Discover the glory of the Pharaohs and Towers of Zimbabwe, the cosmology of the Yoruba, the courage of the Masai and the golden wonders of Mali, the art treasures of the Bushongo and the sophistication of the Egyptians. It is a unique documentary portrait of the Africans’ struggle to preserve their cultural heritage and homeland. 

Recent archeological discoveries indicate that Africa was the birth place of humankind. Over the ages, the riches and wonders of Africa have attracted the world. Yet the Africans themselves often remained unknown or misunderstood. Here is a book to set the historical record straight. 

 
Herb Boyd has traveled extensively in Africa. His first book, The Former Portuguese Colonies in Africa, was published by Franklin Watts.

Shey Wolvek-Pfister is a painter and illustrator. This is her fourth For Beginners book.
