Nelson Mandela’s Favorite African Folktales

July 01, 2009 | Hachette Original
Winner of the 2010 Audie for Audiobook of the Year, "Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales" features a special message from Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Original Music by South African legends by Johnny Clegg and Vusi Mahlasela. In his original foreword for the folktales, Nelson Mandela wrote, "It is my wish that the voice of the storyteller may never die in Africa, that all the children of the world may experience the wonder of books." "Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales" brings his vision full circle, as these timeless tales return to the oral tradition to be heard around the world.
