I was given a copy of Mile 46 through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:
Mile 46 is the result of one American Young woman who shared the narratives of her time amongst the Massai.
In 1988 the author took a semester off of school and enrolled in an exchange program at a coffee plantation cum college campus in Katheka.
This book came about through journals she kept during that time, as well as vibrant pictures of the Massaii along Mile 46.
The author delves int subjects like culture, female circumcision. We learn that most days the Massaii diet consists of only Milk and Cabbage most days, and that they often chew on sticks to ease their hunger as well as to whiten their teeth. And we learn too that women and children are looked at as property amongst the Massaii.
If you are look to expand your knowledge on the Massaii then Mile 46 can help you on that journey.
Five out of five stars
