Tales of travel and discovery in a remote Himalayan kingdom, Zeppa's memoir of her two years as a teacher in a remote village details her growing love and commitment to the Bhutanese culture and people. She records her transformation from wide-eyed neophyte to falling in love with a Bhutanese man (with whom she has a child).
Author: Jamie Zeppa
NHA Staff Recommendation:
"There are very few books that offer firsthand accounts of life in Bhutan. As an outside Jamie Zeppa recounts her culture shock upon arriving from Canada into Bhutan. She describes the countryside so well that you feel as if you are there. When I finally did get to Bhutan I had felt familiar thanks to this book." - Suzanna Spencer
