Abstract:

Lwaano Lwanyika is a book on the culture and resources of the Zambezi Valley. It was written for and with Tonga adults and children. It brings together the knowledge of local people and specialists in ecology, botany, law, economics, agronomy, history, anthropology and archaelogy.

Lwaano Lwanyika breaks new ground in its presentation of information accessible to a range of people - from children to professionals. The format allows an interplay between information, analysis and commentary that includes riddles, proverbs and stories from the Zambezi Valley.

The text covers people, technology and resources. It is the first major book to be published on the world of the Tonga people in Zimbabwe. It includes a list of over 600 plants identified by their Tonga, scientific, English and Shona names as well as many of the uses to which these plants are put. There are 130 photographs by Alexander Joe, and many illustrations by Colleen Crawford Cousins and the children of the Mola Art Group.
