Product Description

Paperback, 75 pages

Central Africa is at the core of the African continent.  The nations which comprise this region are inhabited by hundreds of different ethnic or tribal groups.  While there are many differences among these people, there are also many similarities.  Oral tradition has played a very strong role in the passing on of the stories of these people, which we refer to as folktales.  These stories, told to children, and shared in villages and homes, reveal a great deal about the thought and culture of teh peolpe of this region.  In many ways, they show the way people think and the values which they possess.

The author, Thomas G. Shaefer, Ph.D, is an educator and a churchman.  He presently serves two parishes in the Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh, is an administrator at LaRoche College, and also works on numerous boards and foundations.  It is his hope that this book of Central African stories will help children to discover how others think and live differently, and open readers' minds to a new, exciting, and expanded view of the world.
