The Boy who Spat in Sargrenti's Eye
"On 13 June, 1873 British forces bombarded Elmina Town and destroyed it. It was never rebuilt. Later that same year, using seaborne artillery, the British flattened ten coastal towns and villages - including Axim, Takoradi and Sekondi. On 6th February, 1874, after looting the Asantehene's palace in Kumase, British troops blew up the stone building and set the city on fire, razing it to the ground. 15-year old Kofi Gyan witnesses these events and records them in his diary. This novel, first published soon after the 140th anniversary of the sack of Kumase, tells his story." -- Back cover.
