Description
 

What a story! The constant struggles to raise sufficient food, to keep evil spirits at bay, to follow the customs of their ancestors, and to interact with others make life complex for this agrarian people. Readers will enjoy a detailed, inside view of how the Chibok of Nigeria have survived in a harsh land.

It is a story of a proud people who lived in and near the Chibok rocks. Warding off intruders, they were the last group in Nigeria to submit to British rule. Without the Chibok language reduced to writing, their oral history was in danger of being lost to changes brought by westernization. This compelled the author to write the story of the Chibok to preserve their history and customs, their struggles and their joys.

Uniquely qualified to tell this story, the author and his family lived among the Chibok and learned their language and customs for four and a half years. Gerald Neher was a trained agriculturalist with a B.S. degree from McPherson College and an M.S. degree from Cornell University. He also studied anthropology at Cornell University, Kansas University, and at Southern Illinois University. Lois Neher graduated from McPherson College with a B.A. in education and has taught in both the United States and Nigeria.
