Facing the Lion: Growing Up Maasai on the African Savanna by Herman Viola, Joseph Lekuton

Joseph Lemasolai Lekuton gives American kids a firsthand look at growing up in Kenya as a member of a tribe of nomads whose livelihood centers on the raising and grazing of cattle. Readers share Lekutons first encounter with a lion, the epitome of bravery in the warrior tradition. They follow his mischievous antics as a young Maasai cattle herder, coming-of-age initiation, boarding school escapades, soccer success, and journey to America for college. Lekutons riveting text combines exotic details of nomadic life with the universal experience and emotions of a growing boy.
