There has been a long history of animosity between the kings of Sokoto and Kano. Because of the result of a decision taken by the king of Kano regarding a generational dispute between the two Caliphates, the king of Sokoto feels slighted and cheated by the king of Kano and he decides the only way to settle the age-long dispute is to wage war on the king of Kano. But the king of Kano, being a man of peace, is anxious to settle the dispute through peaceful means rather than war in order to avoid unnecessary blood shed. What is he going to do to avoid war? Will his chief Adviser Malam Salmanu be able to save the day? The King of Sokoto's weakness is listening to stories; will Salmanu's eloquence at story telling impact on the King of Sokoto and persuade him to call off his army? This book is a collection of short stories written in simple prose that the reader will find riveting, full of suspense and intrigue, from beginning to the end. A great book to learn Hausa!
