- Kurzbeschreibung<p>When R. Sutherland Rattray joined the School of <br> Anthropology at Exeter College, Oxford, he had already <br> published Chinyanja Folklore which documented the tales and <br> customs of the Chinyanja of Central Africa. He was also quite <br> familiar with several West African languages. Therefore on his <br> transfer to West Africa learning about the Hausa language and <br> culture became another string in his already full bow and it was <br> only a matter of time before Hausa Folklore was published.<br><br> However, understanding the Hausa culture requires an <br> understanding of Islam itself-a task that can seem near <br> insurmountable when the student is from a Western back-<br> ground.<br><br> Hausa Folklore does not claim to stand alone-a considerable <br> library of Hausa literature already exists. Hausa Folklore is an <br> enrichment of this proud tradition, which brings the Western <br> world directly into contact with Hausa culture.<br><br> This volume tells of the origin of the spider, of beautiful <br> maidens, of how hartebeest came by the teardrops under their <br> eyes, of witches, of doctors riding hyenas on pilgrimages, of the <br> cause of thunder, and more. Some of these tales are more fairy <br> than legend and others more folk than fairy. Each story imparts <br> a clear message about right and wrong while showing what <br> colour and variety lies hidden in the monotone of the Sahara.<br><br> A percentage of the profit from the sale of this book will go <br> towards organisations which offer educational scholarships in <br> Africa. So curl up with these unique West African stories from <br> yesteryear with the knowledge that you have helped sponsor <br> the education of an underprivileged African youth.</p>
