Share Article

Recent release “The Land We Leave Behind” from Page Publishing author Akufor I. Aneneba is the story of one man’s conviction that his civilization, which was once decimated by the effects of the slave trade, is being threatened again. This time, not only from the moral authority of a radical Roman Catholic priest, but from the conflicting views of his own son’s dithering with the very basic tenets of an upbringing he grew up embracing.

Akufor I. Aneneba, born in the Cameroons and is currently licensed to practice law in the State of New York, has completed his new book “The Land We Leave Behind”: the protagonist’s, Johnathan’s, journey will take him from the grass fields of Tchou and the urban sophistication of North America, to the Jungles of the Amazon, where he will make a stunning discovery of epic proportions.

Aneneba explains, “(I was) born in Santa Akum, the Northeastern Region of the Cameroons where (I) attended primary school at the Roman Catholic Mission. (I am) licensed to practice as an Attorney and Counselor at Law in the State of New York. (I am) an advocate of basic human rights and freedoms, and more importantly, an advocate for the individual. (I) advocate for justice through the prism of the law. (I have) seen first-hand how elusive the quest for justice can be, especially for those on the lower rungs of the legal ladder. (I) believe the scales of justice should not be twisted to achieve a balance, because the whole purpose of the law, which is the bedrock of an equitable and representative society, would be defeated in the process. Every attempt to live in harmony with self, neighbor and the environment is what would eventually propel us to our highest level of achievement and satisfaction.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Akufor I. Aneneba’s riveting work is about Johnathan, who is torn between his newfound love in a woman he meets in America, and his father’s dream of him becoming the beholder and guardian of what remains of their civilization, the son treads carefully into the unsettling embrace of his father’s closest confidante – his own mother – to entreat himself into something that resonates with his passion, while still honoring the dictates of his culture and his father’s wishes.

Using the science of onomatology, he discovers that Brazil’s leading scientist, who is also likely to be one of two brothers boarded onto a slave ship for the New World, is actually from a small kingdom in the tropical rainforest of the Cameroons. There is another twist in this saga, because a slave who successfully staged the first nonviolent escape from the Southern cotton fields of North America, and adopted the name David, as a free man, may indeed be of the same lineal descent with the scientist in the Amazon. This book, also extrapolates the biblical significance of the mythos of the Trinity; and how it was used by the slaves to escape into freedom’s reach.
