The first of a series of books for both children and adults that will acquaint you with some of the rich traditions and cultures of the Ghanaian people.

Pictures in the book were passionately drawn by children of the village of Gomoa Mankoadze, Ghana, in an attempt to show the world outside some of the riches of growing up in traditional Ghana.

The children, all between the ages of ten and thirteen, had no previous experience with this kind of art, but could instantly produce these wonderful and unique works, showing an enormous amount of talent yet untapped.

Ghana: The Happy and Peaceful Country.

Whether for its Hospitality, Culture or Tradition, Ghana has an impact on visitors that is out of proportion to its relativly small population.

Show me the most beautiful beach that you know in the world and I will show you one of many in Ghana that is more beautiful and unique.

This book will not only try to tell you where to go in Ghana, but also attempt to introduce you to the History, Culture and Traditions of a people who have a lot to say to the rest of the world.
