Joseph Lemasolai wrote a book about his life. His people, the Maasai, are nomads,meaning they do not stay in one place for long. They move their villages in search of good grassand fresh water for their cattle. "The cow is the centerpiece of pretty much everything we do,"Joseph explains.“That s why we move.We could not be nomads without cattle.You can’t move for nothing--you can’t just walk around.
When he was very young，Joseph spent much of his time looking after his family’s cattle，taking them to food and water and watching out for lions.He played on the grassland with his friends.
when Joseph was about six years old，he left his family to attend a boarding school（寄宿学校）。There，Joseph faced difficulties much like other children do.He was laughed at because he was fat.He got into trouble daily with his teachers.
But Joseph also faced difficulty most children do not.”Every time school closed for vocation，I had to find my way home，“Joseph says，”That was one of the hardest things：“The village might be 5 miles a way.or it might be 50.Sometimes I wouldn’t know exactly where my family was.I had to search for them.”
Joseph later attended high school in a city.After graduation，he went to college.Finally，he became a social studies teacher，and now he is teaching seventh and eighth graders at a school.
Every summer，Joseph travels back to the grassland to visit his mother，brothers，and
friends.And he takes a group of students with him to see both the beauty and the difficulty of growing up in that part of the country.“I like to show them the other side of the coin.”Joseph says.

Most of New Zealand’s heavy machinery must be imported，but assembly（装配）plants
make automobiles and trucks from imported parts.Woolen goods，carpets，clothing，shoes，furniture and electrical appliances are also manufactured.Imported petroleum（石油）is refined（精炼）at an oil refinery at Whangarei.An aluminum smelter at Blutt，near Invercargill，use hydro—electricity to refine one that is imported from Australia.

The sea is very big. Look at a map of the world. There is less land than sea. The sea covers three quarters of the world.
The sea is very deep in some places. There is one spot, near Japan, where the sea is nearly 11 kilometres deep. The highest mountain in the world is about 9 kilometres high. If that mountain were put into the sea at that place, there would be 2 kilometres of water above it.
If you have swum in the sea, you know that it is salty. You can taste the salt. Rivers,which flow into the sea, carry salt from the land into the sea. Some parts of the sea are less salty than other parts. There is one sea, called the Dead Sea, which is very salty. Because it is very salty, swimmers cannot sink! Fish cannot live in the Dead Sea.
In most parts of the sea, there are plenty of fishes and plants. Some live near the top of the sea. Others live deep down. There are also millions of tiny living things that float in the sea. These floating things are very small. It is hard to see them. Many fish live by eating these.
The sea can be very cold. Divers, who dive deep down in the sea, know this. On the top the water may be warm. When the diver goes downwards, the sea becomes colder and colder.
Another thing happens. When the diver goes deeper, the water above presses down on him. It squeezes him. Then the diver has to wear elopes made of metal.
