The Empire Summary

Sundiata travels around defeating the remaining allies of Soumaoro. He fells cities in single days and conscripts the soldiers for his own armies. Each day before battle, Sundiata sacrifices animals and prays to the gods at the advice of his spiritual advisors. At one point, he prays and drinks from a magical stream and returns to his men with a special glow in his eyes. He has become one chosen by the gods.

Sundiata rests at Do and sacrifices a rooster in the spot where the buffalo fell. The winds blow westward and he knows he must return to Mali. He commands his armies to meet him in Ka-ba, where Sibi is king. Sundiata's generals have secured Sundiata's rule in most of the land and all will meet at Ka-ba.
