Well written in a very personal voice. Thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the book. It was engrossing from the start. I can only imagine what it would have been like to live through these experiences. It took 6 years to finish it, but was well worth the wait. It is also fun to go back and read some of the blog posts from the same time that these stories took place. Hopefully photo galleries for the book will be up on the author website soon. Putting faces to names always makes the story more rich.

"Coming of age in a small African village" Filled with humor,insight,danger,and mystery.  A great book to gain insight into a small village and school in a remote part of Africa. Very enjoyable reading.

The Mountain School is a wonderful read. To immerse oneself in another culture is no small thing nor are the lessons shared by a man who has done so. The honesty of this story and the growth of the author and people around him are remarkable. Greg Alder, Lesotho and the people he lived with come alive on each page, as does our shared humanity. I felt as if I was there with him. The Montain School is plotted like a novel and written in tight, witty language. I highly recommend it
