My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Heart-rending, poignant, thought-provoking and joyful...

The field of anthropology has long been associated with the study of primitive tribes and exotic cultures. However, Israeli author Eti Dayan sets a unique tone with her debut book “One of Them.”

How other people live their lives has always been a source of great fascination and curiosity. Now with this new book the author invites the reader, sharing her unique experiences and insights, into the Maasai people of Africa.

‘The Maasai are an indigenous ethnic group in Africa of semi-nomadic people settled in Kenya and northern Tanzania. Due to their distinct traditions, customs and dress and their residence near the many national game parks of East Africa, the Maasai are among the foremost African ethnic groups and are known internationally because of their links to the national parks and reserves.’

This is the author’s personal story of how she became ‘One of Them’. It was a heart-rending, poignant, thought-provoking and joyful read. Highly recommended.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
