"Amkoullel: The Fula Boy is A.H. Bãa's memoir of a childhood in Mali during a period of war and colonial conquest. Bãa recounts in vivid detail the story of a youth marked by the aftermath of war between the Fulbe and Toucouleur people and the subsequent arrival and installation of French colonialism. In addition to painting an appealing portrait of Bãa as a child and young man, Amkoullel provides vivid descriptions of a traditional society in transition along with precise, historical documentation of a period that forever impacted the course of African history".
