Barry's autobiographical novel, ""La petite Peule "", is the story of an early Peul childhood spent in Senegal. The Peul are a primarily nomadic people of western Africa.
The book opens with a description of the violence and trauma of a young girl's excision at age six. This is but the first of many trials.
After a younger brother is almost killed by a truck, the family moves to La Medina, a Dakar neighborhood where rats gnaw on children's toes at night and where children must struggle with adults in order to fetch water or use the communal toilet.
Attending school is the one high point in the girl's life, but even there she must stand up to older bullies. Her family life is completely upset when her mother walks out, leaving her to clean, cook, and care for her younger brothers.
Then when her father finds it impossible to cope with the children and with his failing business, he withdraws the little Peul from school and relocates the family once again, this time to his mother's village in the mountains of northern Guinea.

She is determined to direct her own life and assert her right to do so. Visit our Gift Guides and find our recommendations on what to get friends and family during the holiday season.Biography Daby Baldé was born in Kolda, in the Fouladou part of the Casamance.
