The Worlds of a Maasai Warrior

by Ole Saitoti

  • BIOGRAPHY/MEMOIR
  • 1988
  • PAPER
  • 144 PAGES

Wonderfully evocative of life in Maasailand. Raised in a traditional Kraal, on the open plains of Africa's Rift Valley in the 1950s, Saitoti became the first in his family to leave the family compound and attend bush school. He went on to become one of the first safari guides, featured in a National Geographic film and later educated in Munich and New York. Here he looks back on his life as a Maasai and spokesperson for his people, bridging several worlds with tremendous grace.  (EAF29, $27.95)
