The women of the Maasai tribe in East Africa lead difficult lives with few freedoms. For Maasai girls, the prospect of attending secondary school is often unrealistic and unattainable. Their culture is one that grants women only limited power and discourages them from thinking independently. And even today, a girl can be as young as twelve years old when she is wed in exchange for a dowry of cows for the girl's family.

Through her determination to find her life purpose, a Minnesota woman embarks on a search that leads her again and again across the world to a small region in Africa. As the story unfolds, she discovers that a seemingly small part of her past leads her into a deep, personal involvement with the lives of Maasai women in Tanzania. Together, they find power and ability to change their lives forever.
