Summary

Based on author Bonnie L. Hewlett's ten years of field experience in the Central African Republic,Listen, Here Is a Story: Ethnographic Life Narratives from Aka and Ngandu Women of the Congo Basinoffers a fascinating glimpse into the lives of contemporary African women in their own words. Rendered here are the experiences of four women who Hewlett depicts in their homes, fields, and the forest. The women vividly recall memories, childhood games, dances, folk tales, songs, and drawings from throughout their lives and provide insights and anecdotes from their experiences as children, adolescents, mothers, wives, and providers. A vital contribution to literature on foraging and farming societies,Listen, Here Is a Storypresents a new viewpoint on small-scale communities from a non-Western perspective.
