"Things Fall Apart" by Chinua Achebe
Has the Book Club already done this one? If not, I recommend it; not only because it ties into our interest in ancestors, but it enlightens regarding an African tribe and their feelings about ancestors. From the book cover:
Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe
THINGS FALL APART is no less successful as a social document, dramatizing traditional Ibo life in its first encounter with colonialism and Christianity at the turn of this century. Set in an Ibo village in Nigeria, the novel vividly recreates pre-Christian tribal life and shows how the coming of the white man led to the breaking up of the old ways."
It's a short book but a very good read.
