Hausaland Tales from the Nigerian Marketplace
Gavin McIntosh (au). For a thousand years the Hausa people have been traders in sub-Saharan Africa, & most have remained a pastoral people. Village life revolves around the weekly market days, when all the people come to the great open market to buy, sell, visit, gossip, & tell stories. McIntosh gathered the stories he heard from native tellers, & has translated & retold 12 of them here. He has used fictional tellers -- Umaru the weaver, Musa the potter, Ibrahim the blacksmith, Amina the vegetable seller, & Tsalla the herbalist, among others -- to recreate the atmosphere of the marketplace. He paints a vivid picture of an ancient culture in the process of modernization, where the herdsman’s handmade coal stove coexists with the modern kerosene cooker. Juvenile aud. Illus.
