from the book: "It is June of 2002, and a very unusual ceremony begins in a far-flung village in western Kenya. It has been nine months since the September 11 attacks. An American diplomat is surrounded by hundreds of Maasai people. A gift is about to be bestowed on the men, women, and children of America, and he is there to accept it. The gift is as unsought and unexpected as it is extraordinary."
