This is a unique work on the origin, development and culture of an African tribe living in the northwest of Liberia. Written by a descendent of Paramount Chief Degein Korvah, the book combines an oral history of the tribe, its initial contact with the government, a description of cultural and social practices, and stories into an authentic, authoritative and rich ethnographic account. The book will serve “as a guide to the young people of the country to undertake similar work for the preservation of their cultures.”
