NEW! Nzinga – African Warrior Queen

Nzinga - African Warrior QueenRead a preview!
Across the savannah and into the green mountains, people shouted her name:

“Nzinga, Nzinga, Child of the Flame!”
“Nzinga, Daughter of the Old Ngola, Savior of Ndongo!”

Sent to make a treaty, Nzinga of Angola is swept into world history, a generation after Elizabeth I ruled England. For forty years, Queen Nzinga fights to destroy imperial colonists who seek to enslave her people.

Nzinga, in history and legend, is a brilliant leader during a time of violent upheaval. Luminous storytelling in this fictional biography brings to life the Angolan culture in a flourishing African kingdom, now lost, where early explorers’ maps of West Africa call out:  “Here reigned the celebrated Queen Nzinga!”

What people are saying about Nzinga.
