If you’ve ever considered joining the Peace Corps, be sure to read this book; it will put the experience in realistic perspective. A former Peace Corps volunteer (agroforestry in Cameroon, West Africa) shares his insights into what it’s really like in the Peace Corps. Written in a handy question-and-answer format (a total of 73), the book addresses some of the most important issues faced by Peace Corps volunteers. Capturing the Peace Corps experience, it provides an insider’s view on the organization, the work, the jobs, the trials, and the tribulations Peace Corps volunteers face. Will you have running water? How will culture shock affect you? What if you’re gay? What if you’re vegetarian? Will you be able to travel? The answers are all here. 2000.
