This volume is the first report of the Bole Language and Documentation Unit (BOLDU), whose aim it is to gather, analyse, perserve and publish everything connected with the language, culture, and history of the Bole people in north-eastern Nigeria. Bole-Tangale belongs to the West Chadic branch of the Chadic language family (subgroup West Chadic A.2) and has about 100,000 speakers in northern Nigeria.

Part I is devoted to some of the crafts in the Bole region of Yobe state. The authors, being both linguists, concentrated on the Bole crafts terminology.

Part II consists of an article on the physical geography of the region, an article on Fika urban geography and a contribution to the study of the toponyms of the region.

In Part III, the yet unpublished Guide to the Potiskum Museum is presented. It is accompanied by a Catalogue of the Artefacts in the Museum. At the end of the volume, a Bole-English glossary is appended.
