The Goat That Vanished

eBook short story for the Kindle

 

Words: Ifeoma Onyefulu

Images: Emeka Malbert

 

Published Autumn 2013

BooksgoWalkabout, Cambs, UK

This is a story about what happens when the elders are disobeyed.

 

In one particular village, the elders, who were used to total obedience, requested a gift of a cow at a funeral. They were pretty confident they would get it. But they were given a goat instead

by the relatives of the deceased.

Naturally, they rejected it.

Read this book and Ifeoma's other forthcoming titles on a Kindle Fire.

Amazon.Kindle - a great reading experience for stories about Africa...
