Village Boy

Genre: Fiction


Thrilling, funny, irresistible and full of suspense, Village Boy is not just a real life saga of a poverty-stricken boy who overcame incredible obstacles and prevailed against all odds. It is the inimitable and absorbing adventure into village life in southern Nigeria, especially AkwaCross States. For adults, it is a nostalgia to relish. For the younger generation, this is not just a breezy window to the 60s and 70s, but the veritable binoculars to trace the footsteps of their parents and grandparents, in the proverbial good old days. And for teachers and students in secondary and tertiary institutions, this is a study in creative writing.
