Product: African Culture Books
Visdom från Afrika, Dianne Stewart
In Africa proverbs are important because they reflect both the past and the present, and are as relevant today as they were to traditional society. As with so much of African culture, proverbs have been passed on in the oral tradition. It is rare to find a treasure as this book with proverbs from across Africa. The text is given in the language of origin, an English translation and an explanation to the meaning. The proverbs are divided into subject groups such as human nature, family life, good fortune, time, animals and nature. The book has a hard cover and 160 pages.
