On the 16th day of February 2007, David Wedd‘s book about Ghana and the many years that led up till its fiftieth year since independence hit Amazon. Since publication, the book, titled “The Sunshine Land: Ghana Fifty: Memories of Independence, 1957” has been met with a warm welcome by many across Africa and North America.
Considering the weighty significance of the book on the history of the Ghanaian army, the team at Author’s Tranquility Press are taking another look into what many have called “an informative piece of writing”.
In “The Sunshine Land”, David Wedd writes from experience about his experiences while he served as an army officer in West Africa’s Gold Coast. He was deployed around 1957, just about the time the region became Ghana. Despite the darkness of the times, David Wedd believed that the world was missing out on a bounty of exciting – and maybe funny – tales that surrounded the birth of Ghana as an independent colony.
David Wedd recounts his love for West Africa in the book using exciting words and humor very often. The Sunshine Land opens the world up to various characters that were involved in the decision-making at the time. He also makes sure to include characters, groups, and individuals from the society who were neither leaders nor soldiers but had interesting parts to play in his experience. In all, he wrote about soldiers, leaders, market women, religious leaders, witch doctors, sportsmen, teachers, and of course, Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first Prime Minister.
Author’s Tranquility Press intends to reintroduce the public to David’s work and has accepted to put the book through its excellent promotion campaign. The publishing company is a prominent publicity agency in the literary world. They are dedicated to providing authors with publicity for their works and fondly refer to themselves as “the authors’ ultimate book publicity partner”.
