Arrived tired. Mali inspired. Living unmired.

Piped water frees girls for school.

Peru: She returned with blinders off.

by Patricia (Silke) Edmisten (Peru 1962-64)


In making his selection, Richard Wiley writes, “I read them all a dozen or more times, and came up with three that I like best, two of which seem to emphasize what being in the Peace Corps did for the volunteer (and writer!), and one that highlighted a good Peace Corps outcome for the country.What was hard about this was deciding how I wanted to order these final three.  It was a very close call. Thank you for allowing me to have a role in this and congratulations to the winners.
