Romancing Ghanaland: The Beauty of 10 Regions
- SKU: BK304
This book bares the public face and the private parts of Ghana’s tourist attractions. Kofi Akpabli is a journalist and an author who has travelled across Ghana. He has written on the culture of a lovely people; their lifestyles and environment. When he was voted for two years running by CNN as the Best Arts and Culture writer in Africa, he knew he owed the land of his birth a special duty. For nearly two years, Kofi travelled once more, across-country; engaging people, places and events to document the experience.
Romancing Ghanaland brings to Ghanaian readers a beautiful testament of their beloved nation and shows the rest of the world why Ghana remains God’s own country.
“Kofi romanticises about the places he visits in a manner that engages us to re-examine our attitude towards our God-given environment.” TREC
“I have been trying to figure out what the X-factor in Kofi Akpabli’s work is and I think I have it. It is his ability to let Ghana speak to him instead of speaking ‘at’ Ghana.” Prof Esi Sutherland, Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana
