14 Cows for America ~ Massive Maasai Gift
Thanks to Miss Cellania for pointing out in her Mental Floss article, A Bovine Gift From the Heart, about the massive Maasai gift of 14 Cows for America and the best-selling illustrated children's book which now shares this story. Author Carmen Agra Deedy, illustrator Thomas Gonzalez, and collaborator Wilson Kimel Naiyomah teamed together to tell of the generous Kenyan villagers so anguished by 9/11 they felt they had to do something to help Americans through their time of sorrow. This is an epic story of hope and heroic compassion.
