Inspiring story of a different way of life
on August 24, 2009
My Maasai Life tells the story of Robin, a young woman who left behind all of her belongings, friends, and family and entered a world and culture so removed from anything she ever experienced. Robin spends a year living in a mud hut with a Maasai family. She learns Swahili and performs daily chores like collecting water and firewood, cooking, and cleaning. This memoir is beautifully written and provides readers a glimpse into the culture and way of life of the Maasai community/people in Africa. For anyone who ever wished to, or is planning on, a similar sort of adventure, this book is the perfect preview into the life you should expect to encounter.
