At once a hopelessly romantic love story, a gripping adventure yarn and a fine piece of social anthropology, The White Masai is a compulsive read.
Whilst on holiday Corinne Hoffman fell in love with a Masai warrior. After overcoming all sorts of obstacles she moved into a tiny shack with him and his mother and spent four years in Kenya. Slowly but surely, the dream began to crumble. She eventually fled back home with her baby daughter.
From wild animals through starvation to ritual mutilation, this is a book steeped in humanity and one that tells a fascinating tale.
