Comme l'écrit justement Amadou Hampâté Bâ dans sa préface à ce livre admirable, l'Afrique est avant tout la terre de la religion. Non pas d'une religion mystique et abstraite vouebe aux grandes questions de la métaphysique, mais d'une religion terrienne, liée à la nature, qui s'exprime à chaque instant de la vie, qui inspire aux hommes et aux femmes chaque geste, chaque parole. Tel est le sens de ce livre, collection de mythes, de chants, d'offrandes, de prières recueillis dans le vaste pays qu'on appelait naguère le Soudan, de l'arabe As-souad, le "pays noir". Songhay, Peul, Dogon, Mossi, Bambara, Fân, Yoruba de l'Ouest africain, Korona, Bantou, Nuer, Chagga, Hottentots de l'Afrique du Sud et de l'Est, leur parole saisie par de grands voyageurs et amoureux de l'Afrique tels que Germaine Dieterlen, qui collabora avec Amadou Hampâté Bâ et Marcel Griaule, Jean Rouch, le cinéaste de La chasse au lion à l'arc, ou Sir Edward Evans-Pritchard, découvre à nos yeux un pan ignoré de la culture universelle. Elle nous montre la vigueur des mythes, mais aussi l'humour, la poésie, l'imagination des peuples africains, aussi divers dans leur culture que dans leur histoire. Telles les formules magiques songhay "pour s'enfuir à travers les murs", l'incantation des forgerons peul, la prière des Tutshiokwe du Katanga pour venir en aide aux femmes lors d'un accouchement difficile, le culte de Fa et des Orisa qui se mêle au vaudou des Amériques, l'éloge à Amma, le Dieu des Dogon, ou à Mbedzi, le grand prêtre kalanga du Dieu Mwali, "l'étang d'eau tourbillonnante". Puissent ces parcelles étincelantes initier le lecteur d'aujourd'hui au trésor spirituel de l'Afrique, le continent trop longtemps oublié. -- Back cover

"In a style both dramatic and poetic, Kaidara provides a rare view into the 1000-year tradition of the Fulani people of West Africa. This tale recounts the adventures of three characters searching for gold and knowledge, as related by Amadou Hampâté Bâ. Local tradition and Islamic events are beautifully woven together in his exploration of the cosmogony and esoteric tradition of the Fulani. The hero of Kaidara searches for the spiritual knowledge needed to qualify him as a leader--knowledge which is shrouded in secrecy and ritual. Only through spiritual means can power be legitimately attained. The hero and his two companions, journeying toward the land of Kaidara, are challenged by objects, animals and events."--Back cover
