Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I joined the U.S. Peace Corps in June 1971 and traveled with a group of fellow volunteers to Uganda, East Africa, where I taught English Language andLiterature at an all-boys secondary school. Mutolere Secondary School was (andstill is) near the town of Kisoro in the breathtakinglybeautiful, volcanic Kigezi district.  In this near-idyllic setting, Itried to teach this language and the stories it contains to my eager students,who taught me more than I could ever teach them about the aspirations thatgather like an indelible force from even the most humble beginnings. 
     In fall of 1972, all Peace Corpsvolunteers were evacuated from Uganda after the shooting death of a volunteertrainee and the general breakdown of law and order under the violent regime ofUgandan President Idi Amin Dada. The kindness and generosity of the peopleof Uganda, however, will live in my memory forever.
     Decadeslater, Elephant Mountain (and the imagined events that shapeLaurel's experience) was born of that memory.  Laurel inhabits thefictional "what if" based on the real foundation of time andplace. So come along with her to this beautiful African country, backto a time when there were no personal computers, cell phones or internet -- Ihope you enjoy the journey!
