With beguiling humor and humility, Dr. Hale recounts his often amazing (and sometimes almost unbelievable) experiences in bringing western medicine to people who distrust -- even fear -- the introduction of ideas different from their own. He and his family work as a team to dispel that distrust and fear, and in the process have experienced incredible adventures. On the Far Side of Liglig Mountain is a book about - faith and courage - laughter and loving your neighbor - the hardships and the blessings of self-denial -- a book that you will not easily lay aside. Just as he has gained the trust and affection of his Nepalese patients and neighbors by his love for people and his eagerness to share his love of Christ, Thomas Hale will captivate the reader with his intriguing account of the joys and realities of ministering to the human condition....

    These books document two married physicians and their two sons in their lives as missionaries in Nepal. They run a small hospital in a village in Nepal. His two books are what originally helped to steer me towards nursing as a career. They are both a delight to read!

    I read this book many years ago as a college student. I remember laughing until my sides ached. I read it a few times and shared it with friends interested in missions. I loved the honest portayal of life in a more remote part of the world.

    I wanted this to be an adventurous tale of Nepal, but it reads more like an antiquated telegram - each chapter a different incident of life there, but nothing really compelling or heart-stopping (or I'm just hard to entertain!!). for a MUCH better read on Nepal, check out My Seventh Monsoon - LOVED that book!

    it's about a doctor missionary in nepal. just telling some tales of their life in nepal on the side of a mountain at a tiny hospital. it's quite good so far, some interesting stories.
