Barefoot over the Serengeti
Paperback | English
Barefoot over the Serengeti is not some book title pulled out of thin air. It is a concise four-word summary of the childhood of the author, David Read. Barefoot over the Serengeti, while recounting the adventures and tragedies that David experienced at that time, also gives an intimate insight into the lifestyle and customs of the Masai and their associated clans. David takes the reader on an incomparable journey though wild Masailand, as seen through the eyes of a child. It is a journey of discovery – not only of the natural wonders and wildlife that abound in this vast piece of African bush, but also of David’s own self. The philosophies and lifestyle of the Masai opened David’s eyes to another world, and it is this world that he shares with us now as we travel Barefoot over the Serengeti.
