This book paints a vivid picture of life in Ghana, through the stories of Ghanaians themselves. Including a brief historical background - of the sixteenth-century states trading in ivory, gold, and slaves, the effect of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, and of British colonial rule - the book traces the growth of modern Ghana.
