A natural storyteller, Somé will captivate you with the tale of his extraordinary life. Born under the shadow of French colonial rule in West Africa and raised and trained by Jesuits, Somé tried to reconnect with his people, the Dagara. They viewed him with suspicion until he underwent a harrowing, month-long initiation. This first-person account of his spiritual reintegration reveals the timeless value of initiation and ritual and challenges the Western listener to reexamine the world of facts and logic in light of the magical, tribal world of the Dagara.

    " This book was a gift from my friend Mike Johnston, an amazing jazz musician with deep ties to West African traditions. A few weeks later, my friend Gale asked me if I'd read her friend Malidoma's book. I'm reminded of one of my favorite quotes: "The belief in coincidence is the pervading superstition of the scientific age." So far, it's a great read. "

    " This book was amazing. I read this book long ago and cannot find another copy for my current library. Wonderful, wonderful account of an African boy's journey from an extended childhood to manhood. Wonderful book! "
