"Until the lions produce their own historians, the story of the hunt will glorify only the hunter ".
This saying lamented by Chinua Achebe, a renowned Igbo writer of internal acclaim , leads the direction of this carefully researched book about the connections of the Igbo people and culture to their verifiable ancestors, the Jews.
Godwin Akubue tackles the various areas that connect the Igbo people of Nigeria---customs, beliefs, genealogy, etymology, etc.---to their long lost brethren of the past following the Diaspora, which drove ten out of the twelve Israeli tribes out of the holy land.
In an unbiased manner, Akubue lays out every piece of evidence culled from archaeological , oral, biblical and other published sources believing that the Igbo of Nigeria are descendants of the Jews.
Cow without Tail, by Godwin Boswell Akubue, is a treatise building the case of the lost tribe of Israel on their longed-for Jewry recognition.

" This book directly responds to the call made by Ikemba Nnewi , Chief Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu during Chinua Achebe 's Colloquim at Rhodes Island in the U.S in which he said : " Igbo soul yearns for more Chinua Achebes , clear thinkers ,lucid writers , men of courage , crusaders against injustice , true sons and daughters of their father .
