Self-Publishing Spotlight: An African Tale

An African Tale, is a rich story for children that opens them to the world of Africa; a world of extremes, drought, floods, beauty, devastation, vibrant life and miserable death. The tale  begins with a history of how the Okavango Delta in Botswana was formed when the people were still hunter-gatherers and food and water were scarce. A waterfinder of the time finds a magical stone in the shape of a diamond, which enables him to produce rain whenever needed. He becomes a semi god with eternal life and lives into modern times when belief in gods starts to fade and so does he. He leaves the stone with the prophecy that there will be two children born born at the same time, one from a rural village and the other from the urban city center who will together through cooperation be able to harness mythical power of the magical stone.

Author Enna Uren wrote a story about African children growing up in two worlds (one old and the other new) using some of the old myths and beliefs to create a fantasy world; An African Tale is also a story about environmental issues particularly water which is such a central part of Botswana life. Throughout An African Tale we meet talking geckos, friendly snakes, flying donkeys and a host of other creatures as we travel from the beginning of human time to the present day. Beautifully narrated, An African Tale, is bound to be treasured by children who love tales of adventure.
