A Treasure
The Akan culture of Ghana in West Africa is well known for its proverbs, and this book provides an extraordinary collection of thousands of those proverbs in the original Twi, plus a direct translation into English, and then an explanation of what it is intended to mean. It gives insight into the culture that may be unique. It is a joy to read through.
