THE RIVERS FRONTIER is a historic work on the Rivers State indigenes of Nigeria's Eastern Niger Delta. It encapsulates their journey from the earliest records to the present. This book details their early encounters with Europeans; views on their settlements, languages, and culture; their kings and leaders of the pre-colonial, colonial, post-colonial, and modern era, as well as highlights from these periods.

Through the centuries, the land of the Eastern Niger Delta has remained an economic jewel. Each succeeding global economic demand has been matched with more than proportionate availability. The Rivers Frontier is a history book with a modern twist, that would enable its readers connect with the past, acknowledge the sacrifices and heroic deeds previously made, and stir a contemplation of the future, with the understanding that the world we have today is ours to preserve for those yet to come.
