Long before time, before hours and minutes or seconds, on the continent of Africa, the rhythm of the earth beat for the first people. . . . And with the rhythm begins a story, as Daddy whispers to his two young listeners the tale of the drum, the pulse which has moved through the African people and through time and place. A Smithsonian Magazine Notable Book for Children for 1996. Full color.
