FIELD MARSHAL MUTHONI by Ruth Wairimū Karani
Mūthoni Kīrīma showed great courage even as a young girl when she killed a rhinoceros to save her father's goats. Later she followed her husband into Nyandarua Forest to join the Maumau freedom fighters. Dedan Kīmathi named her Weaver Bird because of her ability to weave brilliant strategies for Kenya's independence. This heart-warming story brings to life Kenya's exciting history and will encourage each girl to be whatever she wants to be.
