The Girl Who Married a Lion: and Other Tales from Africa
Publisher: Recorded Books
Date: February 2005
Duration: 4 hours 35 minutes
From the author of the phenomenally successful, New York Times best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency mystery series, comes this spellbinding collection of African folktales from Zimbabwe and Botswana. The more than 30 stories in this wonderful anthology have a uniquely African flair, but still manage to tap into ideas—love, jealousy, ambition—that are universally human. And since folktales are part of an oral history, hearing them spoken aloud by a cast of wonderfully talented, completely authentic narrators is pure magic.
