About This Item

New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1970. Batian is one of the Masai tribe, an ancient nomadic people of East Africa, who keep goats, cattle and sheep. Batian's experiences and courage provokes a crisis that requires his tribesmen to face squarely their resistance to changing ways. In trying to decide what to do with the boy too young to be treated as a man, yet too skilled a warrior and herdsman to be treated as a boy, the elders of the tribe have to accept new ways and new ideas. The author has centered her story on an appealing hero through whom the problems of modern Africa are made clear and real. Nicely illustrated by drawings.....many in full-page. Orange cloth boards. No ownership markings. A nice sound clean book in an illustrated dust jacket.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good.
