Despite the evidence of some Western influences — guns, denim — there are no signs of any white men around. This is not a how the whites changed my country novel. Indeed, it is set primarily in one village, where we follow, in a relatively low key way, their life. It is seen primarily, though not exclusively, from the point of view of the chief, Kortuma. At the beginning of the novel, his father, Gbolokai, is dying and dies shortly afterwards.
