The Last Maasai Warrior book
Wilson and Jackson are a living testament to a vanishing way of life on the African savannah. They are brave warriors of the Maasai, an intensely proud culture built on countless generations steeped in the mystique of tradition, legend and prophecy. They represent the final generation to literally fight for their way of life, coming of age by proving their bravery in the slaying of a lion. They are the last of the great warriors.
Yet, as the first generation to fully embrace modern ways, the two warriors have adapted—at times seamlessly, at times with unimaginable difficulty—in order to help their people.
At this watershed moment in their history, the warriors carry the weight of their forefathers while embracing contemporary culture and technology. While their struggle to achieve this balance unfolds, their discoveries resonate well beyond the Maasai Mara.
