This book is a detailed account of one man's experiences serving, not one, but two tours in the Peace Corps as a volunteer. He takes you from the beginning of what prompted him to join the Peace Corps and leaves nothing out of the next four years of his service. Being a volunteer in a foreign country, living at the level of those being served, provides a lifetime of experiences wrapped up in a short amount of time. Each day brought new challenges, some humorous, some rather horrific, but life lessons as never predictable. From the jungles of Nicaragua, through the civil war there, to working on the coast of Chile, the author takes you on a journey that will leave you amazed at what one person can do.
