About the Series: Tales from Nibana
These fictional stories are set in Nibana, an imaginary West African state, shortly after being granted its independence from the British in 1962. The stories are largely based on my own experiences gained while living and working in Nigeria for several years during the 60s and 70s.

Review by: ReadersEbooks on Nov. 16, 2012 :
I enjoyed each of the short stories in this compendium. The situations and characters are very real to those who have lived in Africa, and the stories allow the reader to understand many things in a new way, whether one is an African or an expatriate. The situations are clear expositions of ordinary events in Africa, not only of that time, but also now, and the handling of these situations is realistic and an accurate rendering of how things are. Reviewing this book has given me a desire to read all of Kenneth Ryeland’s works. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more of the reasons why the situation in Africa is as it is, as well as to anyone who simply wants a good read.
