Robert Prather, a young American, goes through culture shock when he travels to Nigeria, alone, on a quest to marry his bride. The adventure that ensues is filled with excitement and danger as well as a spirit of giving unlike anything Prather has ever experienced.

Prather struggles with communication barriers, illness and internal conflict as he experiences stark contradictions to the images of poverty and unrest in Africa constantly portrayed in Western media. He falls in love not only with his bride and her family, but with a new culture, new food, new music and a new way of thinking. Ultimately, he realizes that his bride has done something for him that no other woman could—she has reconnected him with his roots.

American Boy, Nigerian Girl is a story of love, discovery and healing that spans three continents and exposes the very human side of West African life in a heartwarming and humorous way.
