In a land beset by political turmoil and bloody conflict comes the
epic saga of Shaka. Ousted by one of his chief father's jealous
wives and raised in exile, his destiny is sealed through allegiance
to a rival chief. Responding to threats from expanding slave trade
in southern Africa, Shaka consolidates a new kingdom through
warfare, mediation, and shrewd diplomacy. A worthy introduction
that offers a young Anglophone audience entry into a legend of
Africa without the annoyance of overtranslation and with
refreshingly three-dimensional characters. --Kirkus .
