Summary
Stories by members of the Peace Corps, recounting their adventures in the Third World. Typical is Ma Kamanda's Latrine by Marla Kay Houghteling, in which an African chief turns down the heroine's request for a latrine, suggesting she use the bush like everyone else. "After years of British, we do not need Americans telling us how to do things."
