Sala, Mountain Warrior

Sala has a real mountain to climb in this authentic story set among the Samburu people of Kenya.

There’s a school trip to climb the mountain near Sala’s home and she’s excited – but nervous too, because she’s the only girl to take the challenge….

But Grandmother shows the way, inspiring Sala with her mountain lore, her special beads and her storytelling. Can Sala climb to the top of the mountain and be the first warrior girl of her clan? Set in the Samburu region of northern Kenya, this is an exciting, inspirational story about courage and empowerment.
