Folk tales and fables of The Gambia.
Volume 2: Banjul: Educational Services , 2011. 128 p. Soft. ISBN 9789983901085.  In English
The fight between Massaneh Ceesay & Bakary Niuminko for the hand of the beautiful Banjulian girl, Fatou, has been a popular legend in The Gambia. The two men used marabouts notable in their mystic powers to win the young lady. Who did she choose? This second volume of Folk tales and Fables includes myths as well as fables. Koochi Barama is a story that transcends all the Gambian tribes. He was a close childhood friend of the king of Sabach. Koochi lived with his two wives. This story shows how lies and betrayal can affect close relationships. In the olden days, rulers used to forge alliances and exchange experiences. The close bond between the kings of Niamanty and Burawulay was well respected. Thus when the king of Niamanty died, his friend was consulted in the administration of his estate. The fables in this collection continue to teach the moral lessons and our cultural values.
