Review title: Conservation & Care.
Readers will be treated to new vocabulary from the Maasai culture. For example, words like enkajis, enkang, moran, bao, and sansevieria. Also, learn about creating a balance between the land and the animals. *Informative. *Educational. *Great for cultural awareness. Enjoy the insightful way the people adopt to life in the modern world and find solutions to live more sustainably. A quote from the book: "A new idea follows an old one." - Maasai Proverb.
