Publisher's Summary

In 1993, two young women, Micah and Kas, set out alone to backpack through Africa for nearly a year. They leap headlong into cultural misunderstanding, crocodiles, and corruption, imperiling their lives and testing their lucky stars. The Motherland unveils her deepest mysteries when Micah falls in love with a nomadic warrior and his rich tradition. Sex, alienation, danger, longing, unwritten languages, and moonlight dances become Micah's pathway to inner wisdom and the divine.
This tribute to the Earth and the people who live in balance with nature welcomes us all to reclaim our place by our ancestors' fire. We are now and have always been the keepers of the story.
Traditional singing included.

Beautiful and enchanting

I loved Micah’s telling of her story. I got lost in Africa, her village, her nomadic family, her insights into this world and the spirit world. I laughed and cried and didn’t want the story to stop. She has a beautiful way with words. I hope she writes more. I will be in line first for her next book.
