Set in a Drakensberg boarding school in the early 1980s, this eerily realistic novel examines San mythology through an 11-year-old boy’s unusual bond with nature and the supernatural. Haunted by dreams of creatures conjured by his culture’s mythology and encouraged by the enthusiastic teachings of an overly friendly school teacher, Andrew makes the Hill his retreat. Seeking solace, his trips to the Hill turn into a real-life nightmare as his mentor uses the area’s isolation and his student’s trust as an opportunity for abuse. A fusion of boyhood innocence, ancient lore, and the harsh reality of adult life, love, and betrayal, this haunting tale of obsession and trauma is at times both heartwarming and achingly sad.

In a small Oklahoma town, one star linebacker must decide what kind of man he wants to be--both on and off the field. Welcome to Kennisaw--where Friday night high school football ranks right up there with God and country, and sometimes even comes in first. This year, the Kennisaw Knights are going for their fifth straight undefeated season, and if they succeed, they'll be more than the best high school team in the eastern Oklahoma hill country--they'll be legends. But the Knights' legacy is a heavy weight to carry for Hampton, linebacker and star of the team. On the field, he's so in control you'd think he was able to stop time. But his life off the field is a different story. His father walked out on him and his mom years ago, and now his mom has a new boyfriend every week. He's drawn to a smart, quirky girl at school--the type a star athlete just isn't supposed to associate with. And meanwhile, his best friend and teammate Blaine--the true friend who first introduced Hampton to football back when he had nothing else--is becoming uncomfortably competitive, and he's demanding Hampton's loyalty even as Hampton thinks he's going too far. This unforgettable novel is the story of a boy whose choices will decide the kind of man he becomes, and raises powerful questions about sportsmanship, loyalty, and the deceptiveness of legends.

Born in 1932, Betsy grew up in a family and a time where emotional needs of children were not well understood. In this void, she experienced her own education as unrelated to her own curiosity or needs, or to the only career available to her, that of wife and mother. The fulfillment of her expected role was dramatically challenged in the 1960's and 70's, especially by the women's movement, and also by frustrating encounters as a parent with her children's educators and the values of the system they embodied. In response, she spearheaded a huge shift in her family's lifestyle and catalyzed the creation, with her husband Bruce, of Baker River School, the subject of Up the Hill to Baker River School, which operated from 1977 to 1983. Since this unique experiment, which erased self-doubts about her intelligence and jump-started her self-confidence and motivation to learn, she has earned graduate degrees from Dartmouth (MALS, 1988) and Antioch Seattle (MA in Psychology, 1991), and been a relationship counselor, coach, and workshop presenter specializing in work with couples. More recently she has added professional health coaching to her practice. Up the Hill to Baker River School is a mother's story of overcoming the limiting beliefs and assumptions of her own childhood, as well as the rigidities of the educational system her family encountered in the 1960's and 70's. The powerful result of her dissatisfactions was the creation, with her husband Bruce, of the school that is her central subject. Here she describes her upbringing, typical of suburbia of the 1930, s, 40's, and 50's: a world with scant awareness of emotions and their role, where school for girls and women served mainly as a place to find a husband, and where Betsy feared she was neither smart nor understood. From there we follow her marriage and motherhood, and in the backdrop of a dramatically changing world, to a series of events that transformed her family's lifestyle and opened the door for the creation of Baker River School. In an engaging description of pivotal moments in the life of the school, the book makes a strong case for the development of emotional literacy and real-world testing of important questions as critical to all students, and to teachers like Betsy Bergquist as well.
