Synopsis: Set in a small rural village prior to the creation of the state of Israel, this imaginative book paints an extraordinary picture of a small community of Ukrainian immigrants as they succeed in pioneering a new life in a new land over three generations. The Blue Mountain transcends its time and place by touching on issues of universal relevance, while never failing to entertain and engage the reader. "Shalev's colorful, feisty characters and vibrant prose animate this indelible depiction of the birth of a nation." -- Publishers Weekly "A vast, and vastly funny, epic; a deeply felt and moving expression of complex emotions." -- Oscar Hijuelos, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love
