Amanfi's Gold

by J.O. de Graft Hanson

The author of this book is one of Ghana's foremost writers of fiction, particularly for children, and is also a literary critic and Professor of Classics at the University of Cape Coast. This novel for young adults is set in Ghana and tells of the search by five teenagers for the treasure of gold reputedly hidden away by Asebu Amanfi, eponymous founder of Asebu, near Moree in the Fanti area. Combining folkloric legend and present-day fact, there is a moral of each story within the story, intended to impart traditional values and provide a commentary on trends in contemporary society.
