The continent of Africa is three times bigger than the United States. This vast landmass provides a varied landscape of forests, river valleys, deserts and grasslands. Over the centuries, many different peoples and cultures have made Africa their home. Indeed, it is believed by many archeologists that Africa is the birthplace of the human race. Early African peoples did not usually leave a written record. Instead, they passed on their histories through oral traditions and stories.
This lack of written histories has made the task of studying these peoples more difficult. Archeologists have had to learn as much as they can by collecting these oral traditions and by studying ancient artifacts.
And those who were seen dancing were thought insane by those who could not hear the music.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Wild horses of the American West are not native. They came with the Spanish conquistadors in the mid-1500s.
