Book Review – A Jamaican Storyteller’s

Written by Staff Writer

About the Book
A Jamaican Storyteller’s Tale is a well-written story which…Jamaican children, and adults, would find intriguing. The style is refreshing and engaging and the content is an interesting mix of fact and fiction.
Underpinned by common Jamaican themes, A Jamaican Storyteller’s Tale tells the story of a young man intent on saving an aspect of his heritage that is dying—the storytelling. He is heavily influenced by his father’s skill at relating these stories. When this family migrates, he comes face to face with the possibility of losing this part of his heritage—forever. By merging these tales with the story of this young man, Burford skillfully creates a synthesis which captures and tantalizes the reader.
