African Myths of Origin
Gathering a wide range of traditional African myths, this landmark new collection offers tales of heroes battling mighty serpents and monstrous birds, brutal family conflicts and vengeance, and desperate migrations across vast and alien lands. From accounts of the inventive wiles of animal-creators and a community fleeing a giant crocodile, to the heroic story of the cripple Sunjata who rose to found an empire, all the narratives here concern origins. They offer a kaleidoscopic picture representative of the rich culures and societies of the African continent; the ways of life, the peoples - from small hunting bands to great empires - and the states that have taken shape over many generations and environments.
