Book Description

Reeves and Davis retell the wonderful founder's tale of Yawah Toe dating to the 16th century and other folklore about members of the Grebo ethnic group living in Gedebo, Maryland County, in the Republic of Liberia. Their oral history of Paramount Chief Wrea "Coffee" Musu, who ruled Gedebo from 1928 to 1965, gives important insight into local politics and government and the changes from traditional rule to Western-style governance. The authors also discuss Musu's successor, Paramount Chief William Duyou Poka, Gedebo's amalgamation into the Karluway Chiefdom, and the creation of the Karluway Statutory District.
