"Bobbo is a traditional weaver from Ghana, where his ancestors have been weavers for generations. His young son, Kweku learns from him. Through Kweku's eyes, we see family and community life in the small fishing village of Denu. Kweku learns that in life, just as in weaving, 'One thread is weak, while threads woven together are strong.'"
Master Weaver from Ghana is a full-color biography of Bobbo, in addition to an exploration of the ancient art of Ewe weaving.
