    The author's personal experiences in the Minianka society, his apprenticeship in drumming. He learned how to use the drum as a healing instrument. I was a little disappointed that the author did not reveal more of his feelings. Other than that, the book is very interesting when it tells of his culture.

    West African percussion is a hobby of mine and I've been to a couple of Ya-Ya's performances and one weekend workshop. The book is an interesting look at a totally different way of growing up a living. I've been to W. Africa(Guinea)but not Mali. Date read is a guess.
