Splinters From the Fire

Coral Foerie has brought together twenty stories illustrated by Bushman artists. We are in Africa, the country of Timbuktu, where the book trade dates form the middle of the 16th century. During this fantastic period countries arose such as Ghana, Mali, Egypt, to name a few. The Bushman, though a small community, are an essential fraction of the African soul. The absence or death of the Bushman would mean imbalance. Read the stories, the legends and the fables contained in this volume an you will learn so much which quicken and enrich your being. Simple happiness that comes with harmony for all ages. May their stories and art live and perpetuate.
