    1. Terlingua Teacher is a winning addition to the one-room schoolhouse genre, which memorably includes Ivan Doig’s wonderful novel, The Whistling Season, and somewhat less memorably, To Be and To Have, a heartwarming but also soporific French documentary film. What the novel The Whistling Season, set in the early 1900’s in Montana, and the true-life story Terlingua Teacher, which unfolds in a remote area of Southern Texas in the 1970’s, have in common is a a dedicated, determined individualis [...]


    2. loved this book for its glimpse into life in the trans-pecos region of texas. we are about the same age as the young school teacher, mr. jones, and having been teachers ourselves, though never in a situation like Terlingua's one room school in the far corners of Texas, we can relate on many levelsdren, parents, community, school boards and arbitrary rules handed down by government boards far from classrooms and reality. we so admired this tough, determined, creative, intelligent and warm young f [...]


    3. I just went on vacation to The Big Bend area and drove through Terlingua. While looking around this little ghost town we saw a school and an adult leading a small group of children along a dusty path beside the school. The baseball diamond and soccer fields nearby were primitive and dusty. I felt kind of sad for those kids. I later saw this book in a gift shop and being a teacher myself wanted to read it. Very interesting read and I was so impressed by the hard working and ever persevering solo [...]


    4. I read this Christmas gift from Molly with fascination to see what life in an area this rugged would be like, and I sure did. The high school kids had what was thought to be the longest bus ride to their school in the world - 1,000 miles each week. The teacher not only taught, he was the custodian, plumber, carpenter, principal, etc, and had to battle a school board that met occasionally at a coffee shop by a gas station. I really enjoyed learning about the setting, but I don't get too caught up [...]


    5. More about teaching and the Texas school accredidation system than living in the Trans-Pecos (as I had hoped), although it did keep the desert life theme throughout with reminders of the remoteness of the town as well as the rugged character (and charm) of Terlingua residents.



    6. Even if you're not from Texas and didn't grow up visiting the Big Bend area like I did, I think you'd find this different and inspiring.
