A bibliography of books
informed by the experiences
of Peace Corps Volunteers
In 1965 Rhoda and Earle Brooks (Ecuador 1962–64) published The Barrios of Manta: A Personal Account of the Peace Corps in Ecuador [New American Library], and shortly thereafter Arnold Zeitlin (Ghana 1961–63) published To the Peace Corps with Love [Doubleday]. By doing so these three Returned Peace Corps Volunteers began what has become one of the most impressive Peace Corps Third Goal achievements — the publication of nearly 300 books written by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers about people and cultures in developing countries, all to be shared with their fellow Americans in an effort to further international understanding and world peace.
Peace Corps Worldwide is delighted to recognize and promote these books through our “Bibliography of Peace Corps Experience Books.”
The books are listed alphabetically by country or region of Volunteer service.
In addition there are other books of interest:
