About the book

Echoes of Africa is based primarily on weekly letters which Dennis wrote to his mother from1958 to 1966 when Dennis and his wife , Ena worked as missionaries in what was Northern Rhodesia and later became Zambia. The letters and this book are a record of a long-lost way of life the Fowler family experienced it among the Ila people of Southern Zambia. It includes anecdotes, characters and observations of everyday life, and presents a fascinating picture of two cultures - European and African - in rural Africa at the end of the colonial era. Fluent Ila speakers , Dennis and Ena Fowler are the authors of a n umber of books and papers on the Ila language, culture and folklore.
