Ashanti to Zulu: African Traditions

By Margaret Musgrove, Leo Dillon (Illustrator), Diane Dillon (Illustrator)

Twenty-six different African tribal traditions and customs are introduced using the English alphabet as the vehicle. A border on each page frames the text and illustrations, where glowing colors mix with rich browns. The attention to authentic detail in each painting is remarkable.
