  • John. Just a note to thank you for ongoing postings about RPCV books. I would never have heard of Gloryland by Shelton Johnson otherwise. It is a great story about the African-American experience. The interior monologue of the main character is stunning. Storyland deserves a large American audience.
    I also watched the Niger ’66 documentary because of your comments. I agree that it is a brilliant piece of work about how the Peace Corps experience echoes through our lives. Roger Landrum
