Synopsis: A child's face, a forgotten scent, or a distinctive flavour engages memory and inspires longing. Ken Haigh brings us tantalizingly close to his own vision of longing for a place, a people, a time, as he revisits those all-too-fleeting years as a young school teacher in the remote Himalayan village of Khaling, Bhutan. These experiences in an exotic country will leave you yearning for ancient Buddhist temples, winding mountain trails, and a simpler way of life. This memoir will captivate the vicarious traveller in each of us.

From the Back Cover: I told myself: remember this moment, this perfect moment. The time may come when you will have need of it. I gazed around at the surrounding hills and drank it all in. —Ken Haigh A child’s face, a forgotten scent, or a distinctive flavour stirs memory and inspires longing for those transformative experiences in one’s life. Ken Haigh brings us tantalizingly close to his own vision of longing for a time, a place, and a people when he revisits his two-year sojourn as a young schoolteacher in the remote Himalayan village of Khaling, Bhutan. Ken’s memoir will leave you yearning for ancient Buddhist temples, winding mountain trails, and a simpler way of life; it will enchant the vicarious traveller in each of us. Ken Haigh is a graduate of Queen’s University and the University of Western Ontario, where he studied English literature, education, and library science. In 1987–1989, he taught for two years in Khaling Valley in Eastern Bhutan. Ken has also taught in China and in the Canadian Arctic. Ken lives in Clarksburg, Ontario.
