Product description


"Mark Salvatore's Peace Corps memoir is a painstakingly intimate insight into a service most only know by name or from a bit of history. Salvatore offers the reader scrupulous detail and heartfelt colour with his story and, most importantly, truth without varnish, something in all too short a supply, these days." Eric Kinkopf, award-winning journalist and author of Shooter and The Untimely Death of Molly Macbeth

"Rural Paraguay in all its simplicity, decades ago! Overcoming obstacles--like experiencing life on another planet. Enjoy this great read as Mark takes you on his incredible Peace Corps journey. The laughter, frustrations, cultural misunderstandings and language barriers all make for a story you won't forget." Marcia Mayer, RN, Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, Rural Nurse Paraguay 1995-1997
