The Land of My Father's Birth free pdf The Liberian civil war affected all Liberians, one way or the other. As a result, all Liberians have some stories of personal experiences of the war that lasted for 14 years. The war caused internal and external dislocation of thousands of people and so many lost loved ones, relatives, and friends.

The book is a multicultural celebration of ethnic and religious diversity which will certainly generate lots of conversations with historical, socio-political, art and cultural dimensions in and out of Liberia. For those who have been following this prolific writer since the early 90s, he has diverse interests as a writer whose writings have been extensively published in newspapers, magazine, as well as countless websites- a
