by John Kofi Amoah
Myths were made for the imagination to breathe life into them. So it is with John Kofi Amoah, who weaves an imaginative fantasy about the origin and development of the human race and its most precious commodity, petroleum, that is truly a tale Beyond Imagination.
Amoah tells the story of Princess Kalibella, of the realm of the earth, and Prince Nalibella, of the realm of the sea, and how from their marriage, all that is human—culture and technology—springs forth as their union brings supernatural forces into play.
As the story unfolds, John relates the punishments meted out to us by Mother Nature and Mother Earth and the splitting of mankind into different breeds, cultures, and races. Most of all, he relates the story of petroleum, created from the king’s wine and hidden under the sea for mankind to find and use. The legacy of oil, world’s yesterday, today, and tomorrow’s most dependable necessity, is the source of our prosperity and our despair, our unity and our conflict, and is surely a subject of mythical proportions. It is his hope that this story will engulf readers in fighting for peace on earth.
