A woman is caught in a storm while moving camp. The Peul people in Mali, one of the world's poorest countries in West Africa, is a semi-nomadic group making up 17 percent of the population. Their movements are dictated by the rise and fall of the river Niger. When the water retreats from the inland delta, leaving behind fertile pastures, the Peul move there to graze their cattle.
