 5 Sheeko (Five Stories): As it appears from its’ title this book contains five stories which pertain to the period between mid-19th century down to the first half of the Twentieth. The setting is the semi-arid Somali plateau where the pastoralists ferociously used to fight over water and grazing lands for the benefit of their respective camels, cattle, sheep and goats. Having that fact in mind the writer tried his best to authenticate the major events mentioned in the stories by traveling extensively in the Somali interior in order to interview elders who had the opportunity to encounter some of the real protagonists of the said events.When published in its’ First Edition back in 2007 the feedback from readers of various disciplines was very positive. This is because the book is written in a style that could be of interest for the laymen as well as for researchers who might be keen to understand the social history of the Somalis in the Horn of Africa.
