Comments Only the Mountains Do Not Move: A Maasai Story of Culture and Conservation

  1. A very well written explanation of the Masai culture and how it has evolved with current ecological, climate and current overgrazing problems Children will enjoy reading and looking at the beautiful photographs to see how the Masai have been able to adapt their traditional lifestyle and still maintain their overall culture.


  2. Personal Response I loved the photographs in this book They were large, clear, and vivid Some pages were all photos They really helped further explain what the text was saying, and they help the reader visualize what life is like for the Maasai people It uses some short stories about specific people from this culture to make it really relatable This book was really interesting and I enjoyed learning about this culture.Purposes ages 6 11 Read Aloud for Curricular Purposes This book would be great [...]


  3. I was surprised to see this book and I didn t hesitate to request it from NetGalley The Maasai are so private, they insist on continuing their culture despite everything and everyone I love that about them.When I studied Linguistics at the University of Oregon, SIL brought a Maasai over for us to learn aspects of their language I focused on their numbering system, which is based on the livestock I will never forget hearing the pounding in our ceiling and running up to the guy s hall to see what [...]


  4. The Maasai are a group of semi nomadic people who live in Kenya and Tanzania In the past they traveled thousands of miles with their herds, following rain and growing seasons and seeking out new pastures for their animals They do not believe in land ownership Their way of life has had to change with modern times, however Other people and practices have required them to reduce their grazing territory and herds and adopt new ideas and traditions small scale sustainable farming, tourism, etc in ord [...]


  5. Okay so here s what I liked about the book The photographs were brilliant I love looking at photographs of people from different cultures and different parts of the world I have heard of the Maasai before, but I did not know so much about their culture practices This is a good book for individuals who are beginning to learn about various aspects of the cultures in Eastern Africa It is an easy read It only took me about 25 minutes to read I loved how the book incorporated the environmental issues [...]



  6. The Maasai people of Eastern Africa have cultural traditions steeped in respect for the land and animals around them, but as the world s climate and industries have changed, it s required them to change some of their ways, too This book explores how one of the Maasai tribes is keeping their cultural traditions alive while still adjusting to the changing world.


  7. A photographic essay about the Maasai people in Kenya, traditionally nomadic herders, exploring the contemporary challenges they face, focusing on environmental changes such as overgrazing of land and the threat of wildlife extinction and how the Maasi are adopting their agricultural practices and lifestyles while preserving their culture taken from jacket cover, 2011.


  8. Beautiful photographic essay concerning the adaptation of the traditional Maasai way of life to the encroachment of the modern world Proverbs are interspersed among the pages, and includes a glossary and pronunciation guide.


  9. I enjoyed this book, a nice introduction to the Maasai Some of the pictures were a little blurry like the rhino However, I think it would be a good introduction for kids.





  10. Great introduction to the Maaasai culture with lovely photos and wonderful words of wisdom interspersed among stories of daily life.
