Nigeria is one of the largest and most linguistically diverse countries in the world. In this country, old and new coexist side by side. For instance, Nigeria is home to the world's second-largest movie industry as well as Africa's oldest dye pit, where clothing is still dyed in the traditional way. Nigerians are known for their friendliness, ambition, and tenacity. This volume introduces readers to Nigeria's vibrant culture and rich history through full-color photographs, detailed maps, and enlightening fact boxes.
