Village That Vanished, The This picture book tells the story of a young girl and an old woman whose courage and quick-thinking save their fellow villages from abduction by slavers. Abikanile's faith in her tribe's ancestral spirits inspires her to find a way across a dangerous river that prevents the villagers escaping to safety in the remotest parts of the jungle. Large scale colour illustrations convey the African setting in fine detail and help dramatise this inspiring story of bravery and resistance.
