Harmattan A Culture Profile of Northern Ghana

African Tales

ISBN: 9789988208240


National tourism journalist and travel writer, Kofi Akpabli cut his teeth as a freelancer in the Northern border town of Paga. After a dozen years of reporting and bagging awards, and having gone round the world, he still shows that his umbilical cord is tied to his place. His second book about Northern Ghana explores the landscape and how the various people engage their culture and environment. Harmattan is about the wind of change that can happen to a place. "What makes Harmattan enjoyable is that it is reflective, sometimes philosophical but like the author himself, always lighthearted." Madam Melanie Kassie, Sirigu "Insightful. Incisive. Interesting. Kofi Akpabli's love affair with the three Northern Regions doesn't seem to have ended." TREC "There is as much about Ghana, in this book, as there is about the North. The ultimate testament to Ghana's savannah zone." Business and Financial Times
