About This Book

"Nzingha...was born in a land in which women were predestined to be subservient to men's whims. Nzingha, however, broke that rule and, following her father's footsteps, became a leader after his death... [T]he author's use of time lines, seasons, and actual place names makes the story believable and interesting... The maps, photos, glossary, illustrations, and genealogical trees enhance the presentation." — School Library Journal
