Synopsis

'Every undertaking begets a reward' is a proverb I often heard while growing up, and being the youngest of 5 siblings I heard it a lot, you got sympathy and attention for skinning your knees or after a scolding, but as a must, I could always count on a relative or friend to always sum up the situation with a proverb, saying or folktale.
And as I grew older these saying, proverbs and tales started to make sense and prove themselves as true and trust worthy guides in my life, as relevant to me today as they must have been to the ancestors that birthed them. Timeless, simple truths, often coated in humor and vivid, mind tickling imagery.

My natural curiosity lead to me to wonder if other societies on the African continent were like mine and this search lead to several nuggets of wisdom from several Ancient African societies of which I categorized and summed up  under, God/Spirit, Love, Beauty, Money/Power, Marriage, Children/Family and The Other Woman. Hence the African Wisdom series.



Outline

The book is divided into 7 categories. North Africa, East
Africa, Horn of Africa, Central Africa, West Africa, South Africa and finally those Proverbs that fit under African Proverbs because are echoed allover the continent.

Each category is introduced by an insightful folktale from that
region.

Audience

My audience is the the Gift book,Coffee table and Home
decoration market, for the  holiday seasons, ceremonies and occasions from birthdays, to christenings, coming of age ceremonies, graduations, mothers and father's day, weddings to Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza all year round these 7 series as a whole book set can make for a perfect gift or anyone by itself.  

And their size is cozy and sturdy enough to carry with one for long periods of time since I intend them be hard covered and to come with a slip case which will make them great company for those who love to get lost in a world of words,thought and truths as old as time.
