Synopsis:

Join Vicki Cobb and Barbara Lavallee on an exciting safari adventure into the Masai Mara of Kenya and Tanzania, home to more large mammals than any other place on Earth. It is a challenge to balance the needs of wildlife with the demands of civilization, but Cobb and Lavallee introduce us to people committed to living in harmony with the land-from Masai farmers to the promoters of eco-tourism. The newest entry in the Imagine Living Here series (This Place Is Cold, This Place Is Wet) continues to explore the ways that geography impacts upon culture throughout the world.

From School Library Journal: Grade 2-4AThis accessible but flawed introduction to the animals of East Africa also offers a brief view of the Masai people who live in close proximity to these wild creatures. Soft colored illustrations are pleasing to the eye. A scene depicting poachers de-tusking a downed elephant is quite poignant and might lead students to seek out the whys, hows, and evils of poaching. A well-thought-out map shows readers exactly where the action takes place. There is no glossary but new words and concepts such as "pronking" and "ecotourism" are explained in the text and listed in the index. There is cause for some concern, however. Lions are misleadingly referred to as "lazy." Calling the marabou stork "ugly" is subjective. Perhaps most disturbing is the sweeping generalization Cobb uses when claiming "the Europeans killed for sport." All Europeans? There is little place for stereotyping in today's science writing for youngsters. Beyond that, Wild might be helpful when used with Caren Stelson's nicely photographed Safari (Carolrhoda, 1989), which includes further data on the lifestyle of the Masai.AAnne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
