Présentation de l'éditeur

This is the autobiography of TEPILIT OLE SAITOTI: From his birth into a traditional society in Tanzania in 1949, through his youth, education in a mission school, and initiation as a warrior, to his career as a game park guide and ranger (subject of a National Geographic film, "Man of the Serengeti"); to his studies in Munich and Boston and at the University of Michigan (where he received an M.S. in natural resources), to his return home, where he was welcomed back ritually into his family. Although Maasai life has been much described elsewhere, this personal view is particularly interesting. It is accessibly presented and is recommended for area collections or library where there is interest in culture contact or the black experience. Elizabeth A. Widenmann, Columbia University Libraries. Copyright 1985 Reed Business Information, Inc.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic! Required reading pre-safari 1 août 1999
Par Frank - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a fantastic book by a Maasai warrior who was brought up traditionally, schooled in local schools, employed as a park warden and tourist guide, and then able to fulfill his dream of education in Germany and the U.S. Not only does he give us a view of his culture, he shows us our culture through his eyes.
The book is both a well-written view of what the traditional Maasai life is like, as well as their sense of values, and the life story of Tepilit himself and his reactions as he grew up Maasai, and was introduced to modern life and technology.
It will broaden ANYONE'S understanding of this culture, but would be especially valuable reading pre-safari. For instance, on safari you'll see young Maasai in the ceremonial black clothing who have recently been circumcised. With this book you'll understand the full significance of that ceremony.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 sitting here with the author 21 décembre 2001
Par turbodella - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I read this book 12 years ago and was so moved that I wrote a letter to to the author - something I have never done before or since. I was so struck by his ability to navigate between two cultures that seemingly had little in common. His book is a testimonial to the flexibility of the human spirit and the power of education. Last week, out of the blue, I received a telephone call from the author. Apparently, he had saved my address all these years. Saitoti is currently in the US as a visiting scholar. He will be speaking in various institutions and he has just started writing a follow up to The Worlds of a Maasai Warrior (The Worlds of a Maasai Elder). I have just shown him these amazon reviews. He is sitting here beside me and
would like to take this opportunity to say: "Thank you to the reviewers of my book for such beautiful reviews and to amazon.com for posting such a wonderful display of my work."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the most profound books I've ever read 20 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I read this book as part of an anthropology course I was taking recently and was totally enthralled with it. Seeing American culture through the eyes of someone from such a vastly different background made for excellent reading. The depiction of the author's life in Africa was exceptional, making a Western reader, like myself, realize how many common threads we all hold with the whole of humanity. I cannot recommend this book enough.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Saitote has lived an extraordinary life in his two world 17 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I recently was on safari with the San Diego Zoo and had the priviledge of having Saitote as a guide in Tanzania. He as a Maasai of course has a unique understanding of his land, but after having been educated in the United States and having helped make the film for the National Geographic "Man from Serengeti" he sees Tanzania as perhaps no-one else on earth does. His book shows a man who killed his lion, was ritually circumcised and then appears to have been tempted by the opportunities of North America. The book is quite frank and is a rare opportunity to understand the difference between the two worlds.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Worlds of a Maasai Warrior: An Autobiography 4 février 2002
Par Steiner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Excellent book, very accurate and really worth the money. It gives the picture of a boy growing up as a real Maasai and the new life in civilized world of Germany and USA - a man between two cultures and the difficult question to decide which way to go along. Makes yourself wondering about the way we Western people are living and gives a chance to see our world with other eyers.
After having visited the Maasai area some months ago a good opportunity to compare facts with my own experience and found it even more interesting. Go for it!
