As one of the first Volunteers in the early years of the Peace Corps, author Terry Sack had his work cut out for him-as well as his passions. In A Peace Corps Memoir: Answering JFK's Call, he reminisces about the organization's early years; surviving a very demanding training program, and then finding his niche in a strange culture as a newly minted Peace Corps Volunteer in a small town in the Amazon basin of Bolivia in the early 1960s. In fifty-two well-considered and thoughtfully penned chapters like "Progress at Last," "Government Ousted," "Plane with PC Workers Missing," and "Trinidad Farewell," Sack takes an easy-to-read chronological approach. He thoughtfully blends romance and humor to recall the enormity of what it was like to endure selection and training and ultimately become a Peace Corps Volunteer after having witnessed JFK's call to arms in a speech at the University of Michigan in 1961.
