The Giraffes of the Desert

Book Cover: The Giraffes of the Desert




Author: Wangui Kamonji (Kenya)


Deep in the Sahara, where the Tenere Desert meets the Air Mountains, on a rocky outcrop, rest the gigantic carvings of two giraffes. The bigger of the two, is over 18 feet tall! Archaeologists tell us that they are about 7-10,000 years old. But how did they come to be? Did their far-seeing spirit guide hunters across the desert? And will they be there for generations to come? Moufa tells her story.
