Facing the Lion: Growing up Maasai on the African Savanna, writt
Facing the Lion: Growing up Maasai on the African Savanna, written by Joseph Lemasolai Lekuton, is a unique memoir about about a boy’s journey of reaching out to a new and unexplored way of life. He goes from growing up on the African savanna to an American University. Lekuton and his family are known as nomads. A nomad is a person or group of people who move continuously from one place to another, never establishing a real home. While keeping his nomadic culture close with him, Luketon attempts to learn a whole new way of life. The author does a good job of explaining the particular aspects of his culture while explaining the differences living as nomad. Also the author uses a unique story outline to display the sequence of events. Although this memoir has many great aspects, it’s lack descriptions at times which may leave the reader wanting more. Despite this I recommend this book to teens or older because of the lesson it teaches you about reaching out to learn more than your own culture.

Facing the lion
This is a very will empowering story about a young boy facing the challenges from his long childhood.
This story is a book Facing the Lion. The book starts with Lection, the author.
He was a young boy who lived in Kenya with the native tribe.
He went to school under Kenya law and eventually moved up to a more qualified school.
\in his stay there he became very good friends with the president of Kenya.
Then he went to a bank in Kenya to earn money, and when he was there he got recruited to a school in America on full scholarship.
He was scared of America because Lection herd rumors that in America it was dangerous.
He was brought by two girls to his dorm and realized it wasn't a terrible place.
He graduated the school and got his masters in teaching math.
He was accepted to Harvard to get his doctors degree.
After that he got a job teaching math at a prestigious privet school.
I liked this book and would recommend it for adults 30 and up.
I think they would be fascinated by this novel and the accomplishments of a boy from Kenya.
