Mikela: Memoirs of a Maasai Woman. by. Jacyee Aniagolu-Johnson. Here is an interesting book of fiction that tells an instructive story of the challenges facing some of Africa's I billion inhabitants whose stories are hardly told well in the news media and in books and conferences. I like "Mikela" and highly recommend it because it takes you on an expository journey that gets you thinking and planning what and how to make a difference not just in the part of Africa where the book is set but also in your own community. iUniverse, 2004 - 235 sayfa

Their quest is for knowledge and to be helpful: there is a strict rule against 'interference'. The narrator, Mary, is a specialist in 'communication' - a kind of telepathy. She operates in a society where women are just as likely as men to be leaders, though she herself prefers not to lead.

Comments to eBook Mikela: Memoirs of a Maasai Woman

As a frequent traveler to Kenya and Tanzania for nonprofit development work, I was very happy to finally find a book written about Maasai women. While the female gentile mutilation descriptions were truly horrifying and probably accurate, I was disappointed that most of the story took place in upper class Nairobi, Paris and New York, places rarely seen by Maasai women. This novel seems an attempt to to entertain with highly unlikely adventures of the "rich and famous" to make the point about the horror of FGM. I wonder how much the author truly knows about Maasai culture. Her bio says she was born in Africa, a very large continent most of which is not Maasai, and now lives in the US. Some of her descriptions do not ring true to me about Maasai customs and sexual practices as explained to me by Maasai friends. I do hope someday a true biography will be written by one of the inspirational women leaders of the Maasai community.

Mikela takes you on an amazing journey of self-preservation and strength. While, as mentioned above, this is not a biography it delves into the trials and tribulations of so many tribal women who must overcome the scars of their youth.

Bringing light to many African countries, the story also reads as a detailed map, giving the reader more than just a passing glance at the places and people Mikela has been introduced to. I found myself going with her on this journey and sharing her enthusiasm for finding freedom beyond the Maasailand in which she was raised.

A heart-wrenching tale of one young woman's battle to escape the ghosts of her past. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in the social, political and traditional beliefs of tribal cultures in addition to those who are seeking to escape their own ghosts of the past. Aniagolu-Johnson does a spectacular job portraying the emotions of one voice, in thousands, that sought to break the cycle.

It is amazing how words coming from one heart goes to another heart!

Mikela is a story of hope in a world of unfairness. A story of a little innocent girl forced to the reality of a bold tradition. Mikela takes you with her to the wonderland of Africa, and shows you the beauty of the Maasailand. You then would experience the dark confusion of a child forced to the land of adulthood, experiencing one of the most horrifying extremes of mankind. At the end you would believe that the bright light of faith in self can bring happiness and prosperity to any lost life...

Mikela is a sad but lovely story. It paints a beautiful picture of African landscapes as well as the lifestyle in various parts of the country, shares the excitement of Paris and Manhattan, and follows one strong woman as she attempts to heal herself from the horror of female circumsicion. In a gentle way, the book educates us about a tragic custom.

this book reads like one. I had to keep reminding myself it was not actually a story of someone's life. It is a beautiful book telling an enthralling and heartfelt story while also providing insight into the world of a Maasai woman and, hopefully, raising awareness.
