Cow without Tail
by Godwin Boswell Akubue
Until the lions produce their own historians, the story of the hunt will glorify only the hunter.
This saying lamented by Albert Achebe, a renowned Igbo writer, leads the direction of this carefully researched book about the connections of the Igbo people and culture to their assumed ancestors, the Jews.
Godwin Akubue tackles the various areas that connect the Igbo people of Nigeria—customs, beliefs, genealogy, etymology, etc.—to their long lost brethren of the past following the Diaspora, which drove ten out of the twelve Israeli tribes out of the holy land.
In an unbiased manner, Akubue lays out every piece of evidence culled out from books, publications, speeches, and works of other people believing that the Igbo of Nigeria are descendants of the Jews.
Cow without Tail, by Godwin Boswell Akubue, is a treatise building the case of the lost tribe of Israel on their longed-for Jewry recognition.
