Madan. Kiungani — Central Africa

Today's free book is Kiungani, or, Story and History From Central Africa as written by boys in the schools of the Universities' mission to Central Africa, and translated and edited by A. C. Madan. You can read about the Universities' Mission to Central Africa at Wikipedia, which includes information about the Kiungani School in Zanzibar.

Part I contains the personal histories of boys in the schools (most of the boys had been caught by slavers and thus became separated from their families), with stories in Part II. I have listed the titles of those stories below. For the titles of the stories, check at the bottom of this post below the image.

The book is available at Internet Archive, Hathi Trust, and Google Books.
