Forests of Gold · Essays on the Akan & the Kingdom of Asante
By Ivor Wilks

The Asante had unique conceptions of time and motion, and the relationships between the unborn, the living and the dead. This study suggests that awareness of their past has much to do with the survival of their culture in this century.

“Wilks’ writing here is as informed, engaged and questing as ever.”
