Footsteps (published by Plain View Press) is the story of two Kenyan sisters coming of age in the 1980s and 1990s, when the HIV/AIDS epidemic is becoming critical. Hanny Lightfoot-Klein, author and long-time activist against female genital mutilation (FGM) declares Footsteps to be “a richly detailed picture of the challenges and hardships confronting indigenous village peoples in contemporary Kenya." Johnson was a Peace Corps teacher in rural Kenya from 1982 through 1984. She is a resident of Madison, Wisconsin and has spent the last twelve years teaching English as a Second Language in its public schools. She believes it is the cultural pluralism to which she is exposed on a daily basis that feeds her passion to comprehend and appreciate the enormous variety that makes up our human family. (booksense)
