In the early part of the 18th century, Jaabe So's ancestors founded a farm on the left bank of the Senegal river. Twenty years ago, So set up an independent farmers' association based among a group of towns along that river. Since then, he and Adrian Adams have spent much of their lives struggling to defend the existence of that association against a state development corporation funded by development aid. This is a narrative of that struggle, placed in the context of three centuries of Senegalese history.
