The Hero with an African Face-

(1999)
Mythic Wisdom of Traditional Africa
A non fiction book by

 
An epic, heroic work by an expert in mind-body healing, this audiobook presents the guiding myths of traditional African civilizations. Picking up where Joseph Campbell left off, Ford examines themes that animate the tales of sub-Saharan African peoples before Christian and Muslim contact. From the rock art of the Bushmen of Southern Africa, dating to some 30,000 years ago, to the sophisticated cosmology of the Bantu, Ford accesses a mythic tribal wisdom in touch with the human Unconscious.
