In school I learned nothing about African history, so when I saw this book I jumped at the chance to improve my child's education--and my own. The book covers three north African empires, Ghana, Mali and Songhay, and some of the most important members of these nations. It covers the gold-salt trade, the role of religion, and the achievements of each empire. My 1996 edition includes some hand drawn maps and an index. As a childrens' book, this is more of an overview than a rigorous or scholarly work, but it's better than I had even in high school, and will serve as a good foundation for later learning.
