The Great Ponds

Tells of the ruinous feud between two villages in Eastern Nigeria. By the author of The Concubine and Estrangement.

Set in eastern Nigeria and published in 1969, the story is about a ruinous feud between the two villages of Chiolu and Aliakoru. The story traces its way back to the pre colonial era, a time when Africans believed in the power of magic and supernatural healing possessed by the traditional healers (dibias, as used in the book) and divine intervention to appease the gods.
