Atieno the Village Hero
by Florence Akumu Juma

“Atieno the Village Hero” is a short story depicting village life in traditional African society. The book is part of a series “Tales from my Father” recaptured by the author. The series is a collection of fiction and non-fiction African oral fables of the early 20th century retrieved among communities in one of Africa Great Lakes region in Kenya. The series seeks to inform, educate and entertain emerging generation of immigrants from the continent of Africa and communities across the global village. They are meant to help narrow the cultural gap.
