Tales from Around the African Campfire
By: Michael C. Tredway
About the Book
Tales from Around the African Campfire is a collection of short stories told by African villagers, soldiers, and wildlife rangers while passing the time sitting around the campfire at night.
After years of collecting and retelling these stories, author Michael C. Tredway began sharing these stories with his friends and family. People, even those not familiar with African life, seemed to enjoy these anecdotes and found humor in them. Mr. Tredway decided it would be a great idea to share the stories with a larger audience. It is his hope that readers can find humor and wisdom in the stories, as well as a better appreciation of African wildlife.
