Synopsis

Nominated for 2010 Peace Corps Writers Special Publisher Award

?This is a very impressive book.? John Coyne, Editor of Peace Corps Writers and Peace Corps Worldwide

?A great job! I am astonished at how detailed and thorough this work is.? David Searles, author of The Peace Corps Experience: Challenge and Change, 1969-1976

Useful for anyone interested in the Peace Corps, this easy-to-read book includes all notable activities related to America?s most iconic program. It describes the first half century of service during which more than 200,000 Americans volunteered to work in 139 countries. Inspired by JFK?s inaugural call- ?Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country?- volunteers from all 50 states traveled to tropical cloud forests, savannahs, prairies, deserts and frigid mountainous steppes to learn a new language and lend a hand.
