This is the sequel to Alexandria of Affrica. And a Maasai warrior has come to her house to live with her. (this may sound wierd, it makes sence if you read the first book.)

I enjoyed this read, as it explained, in a simple way, the life of a maasia warrior. It seems that that is the main point of the book, the time period leading up to the race. I expected the Maasai to win!

Youth fiction - silly story about a rich valley girl type who has Maasai marathoners come stay with her. Not his best, but younger fry might like to learn about the Maasai...not the best message about how rich people can boss their way out of trouble though

This is the story of Kenyan runners who lived with an American family while waiting to run the marathon. This was a good book, it could have gone faster but I liked the ending.

Like Alexandria of Africa this book all lead up with a quick 10 page ending. Could be a better book if Eric Walters would put more effort into a full story development.
