Synopsis

"Of all the things that Ms. Wizowaty found in the Kenyan savannah, peace is clearly the most important. Stark differences between cultures, customs, ways of life, between herself and her parents -- all concern about them seems to have evaporated in the African Sun." -- Globe and Mail

A memoir of a girl's choice to leave childhood comforts behind to live in her adoptive country of Kenya.

Growing up in suburban Illinois, Robin Wiszowaty never pictured herself living with an impoverished Maasai family in rural Kenya. Yet in her early twenties Wiszowaty embarked on an incredible journey that would shake her from complacency, take her to unimaginable locales, and change her life forever. My Maasai Life follows Wiszowaty's remarkable voyage as she explores some of the most remote areas of East Africa and has her eyes opened to the diverse issues facing the fascinating Maasai people.
