The Warrior and the Moon by Nick Would
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Here are five original stories of mystery and enchantment, composed after the author spent time travelling alongside the Maasai through the Great Rift Valley. The stories weave in the special spirituality of the Maasai warriors and range from the poignant story of the white elephant who never forgets human kindness to a tale of the Leopard God of Rain and the remarkable spell used to find him. The stories included are: The Warrior and the Moon, Nasira and the White Elephant, The Road of Stars Sendeyo, The Rain God, Footprints in the Wind. Accompanied by Evie Safarewicz's dramatic and lucid watercolours and a glossary and note on the Maasai, this is a thought-provoking and imaginative book that children will love to listen to and read.
