Sundiata: An Epic of Old Mali
Retold by generations of griots-the guardians of African culture-this oral tradition has been handed down from thirteenth century and captures all the mystery and majesty of medieval African kingship. It is an epic tale-part history, part legend-which should rank alongside the 'Iliad' and the 'Odyssey' as one of the world's great adventure stories.

Another book I had to read for class. It reads like many of the epics I've had to read for school, but the tone is a little different (I guess would be the best way to put it). It's a little less academic and more story telling. All in all, pretty interesting. Read full review
