This simple book is dedicated to the Maasai people who, despite external world pressure, are strongly and proudly determined to live according to their ancient traditions. But for how long? May we, people of the atomic age and the consumer society, understand this act of faith and courage of their decision. The great Maasai tribe is made up of almost 120,000 people divided into about 20 different groups: the Keekonyokie, Mara,,Wanderobo, Ilkunoono, Arusa, Kisongo, etc. Some of these, like the Samburu, for example, have acquired special characteristics through time, which distinguish them from the majority of the Maasai people.
