A condensed edition of Fyfe's seminal 1962 History of Sierra Leon, this version "was cherished in many Freetown homes, and became an indispensable text in schools." Fyfe chanced into his role as the authoritative historian of Western Africa when his brother-in-law tapped him in 1950 to be the official archivist for Sierra Leone.
