My name is Bediako, the only son of my parents until I got to know that my two elder brothers died in the third Anglo Ashanti war, after which my mother followed the next year when I was only one year old. I have lived with my father ever since, but the rest of my family, I only know them by stories.

The African dream must live on, and it is up to us to carry it further irrespective of the obstacles. Territories may be invaded, boundaries may be broken, treaties may be dishonored, but the African dream shall never be cut off.

    ‘Territories may be invaded…but the African dream shall never be cut off’ West African author Bernard Osei Annang combines his interest in teaching others to overcome challenges and achieving dreams in his roles as motivational speaker, author, graphic designer and business consultant. His degree is from the University of Education, Winneba in Ghana. To his credit to date are books The Value of Life, A Dream, Life –the Theory of Everything, Beyond the Ocean, Men of the Sea, and now The African Dr ‘Territories may be invaded…but the African dream shall never be cut off’ West African author Bernard Osei Annang combines his interest in teaching others to overcome challenges and achieving dreams in his roles as motivational speaker, author, graphic designer and business consultant. His degree is from the University of Education, Winneba in Ghana. To his credit to date are books The Value of Life, A Dream, Life –the Theory of Everything, Beyond the Ocean, Men of the Sea, and now The African Dream – each rich in inspiration. In this book Annang becomes an historian of significance as he revisits African history, using that well researched stage to submit his touching fictional drama. His Prologue sets the tone well: ‘My name is Bediako, the only son of my parents until I got to know that my two elder brothers died in the third Anglo Ashanti war, after which my mother followed the next year when I was only one year old. I have lived with my father ever since, but the rest of my family, I only know them by stories.

The African dream must live on, and it is up to us to carry it further irrespective of the obstacles. Territories may be invaded, boundaries may be broken, treaties may be dishonored, but the African dream shall never be cut off.’ The core of the message of the book is simply stated at book’s end – ‘Africa is the land of dreams which was preserved for your time and future. Thee are millions of opportunities yet to be exploited, millions of dreams yet to be accomplished, so stand firm and hold dear the African dream. If you believe you can, trust me, you will.’ The book is short in length but long on message. Annang is an author worthy of attention.

    The African Dream is told from the viewpoint of one individual, Asare Bediako, from the third Anglo Ashanti war (19th century) up to when the first African country became independent (Ghana). It is a history book which reads as a story. It was very interesting and enjoyable to read. It is a small book which can be read as an interim. It was an ARC.
