This is the story of how Maximum Rock'n'Roll Columnist Mykel Board spent a year teaching English at the Mongolian National University in Ulaanbaatar. From getting lost in the Gobi Desert to stirring fights in a Mongolian disco, Board teeters through the heart of contemporary Mongolian culture with the class, humor and buffoonery of a modern-day Charlie Chaplin.
Mykel Board is a columnist for Maxium Rock'n'Roll. He lives in New York, NY.

Editorial Reviews

At a time when travel writing has become a mere showcase for an author's endless philosophizing, Mykel Board's book is a refreshingly philosophy free recounting of people and events in deepest Mongolia, especially dear to those of who will never get there ourselves. The style is clean and direct, the viewpoint both dispassionate and loving, and there is no patronizing analysis of a foreign world on display. It's funny and true - some people may find Board eccentric, but I find his bent point of view remarkably sane.
