Face to Face with War
by Leo Cecchini (Ethiopia 1962–64)
$15.00 (paperback), $9.00 (Kindle)
War is the subject that captures all minds. Many books deal with the subject. This is my personal experiences with war which together give a “”face to face”” view of what it is like, how it happens, its impact and in total a strong call to reject it. While there are many sound reasons to reject war, I reject it because it destroys economies and paralyzes human progress.

Azzedine T. Downes (Morocco 1982-85) with Jane Goodall PhD (Foreword)

Just Keep Pedaling: A Peace Corps Volunteer in Uruguay
By Connie Ness (Uruguay 1994-96)
$12.95 (Paperback), $6.50 (Kindle)
Just Keep Pedaling is a fast-paced book about life in a slow-paced town. Connie Ness was the first and only North American to live in the tiny pueblo of Baltasar Brum in Uruguay, the second smallest country in South America. With over 80 color photos of life and work in Uruguay, reading Connie Ness’s engaging account is like listening to a friend who just returned from a two-year adventure.
