Mountain Town is a lot like Bonnie and Arthur Geisert's book, "River Town". "Mountain Town" follows the year in the life of a rocky mountain town. The book starts with winter, and how the residents live along side the harshness of winter. The book then goes into spring and describes through illustrations and words how the townspeople enjoy the seasonal change into spring. Summer brought about rain and thunder while the fall brought the townspeople together as they support their local high school football teams. The book takes place in the second half of the nineteenth century.
