Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Only the Mountains Do Not Move: A Maasai Story of Culture and Conservation ($18.95) by Jan Reynolds is a photo-essay that explores the lifestyle of contemporary Maasai in Kenya and how they are adapting to changes in their environment. (6 11) September

Review:

"Reynolds's compelling portrait of Maasai culture centers on the Il Ngwesi tribe in Kenya. Through straightforward descriptions ('The Maasai do not count their animals. They know each one by sight') and large, color photographs, readers learn intimate details of the Il Ngwesi people — for example, that they sleep on wooden beds covered in animal skins, and that all members of the tribe, including children, have chores to do before playing games or making brightly beaded jewelry. Reynolds also discusses the Maasai's dependence upon their animals and the effects of climate change and restricted land use on their way of life. A thought-provoking look at a culture that is peaceful and industrious, and which holds onto tradition while facing the future. Ages 6 — 11. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
