Overview

Return to the Other Side of the World takes us on another memorable journey to that enchanted and challenging culture that was India in the late 1960s. We return to that place and time when a group of Peace Corps volunteers responded to President Kennedy's call to work in foreign lands so the world might become a better place. In this second volume, the former volunteers of India 44 share what they experienced and felt as they tried to live out the assassinated president's noble ideal.

In telling their stories, they bring us back to a turbulent period in American history, a decade of war and discontent at home, yet a time of hope and expectation for so many. A few found a way to seek and express the better angels of their natures. With more energy than skills, more hope than experience, these young men and women lived and worked in small villages and towns doing either agricultural development or public health.

As with the first volume of reflections, this is not a feel-good testimony to the Peace Corps. The stories told, the memories retrieved, the feelings expressed are at times raw and revealing. They touch upon moments that are funny, sad, embarrassing, and occasionally uplifting. These are the stories of the India 44 volunteers as they share what undoubtedly remains an irreplaceable and transformative period in their lives.

Mary Jo Clark, Thomas Corbett, Michael Simonds, Kathy Kelleher Sohn, and Haywood Turrentine compiled the second edition. Respectively, the authors reside in San Diego, California, Madison, Wisconsin, the greater Hartford area, Greensboro, North Carolina, and Birmingham, Alabama.

    This work is a fascinating journey to the India of the 1960s by

    This work is a fascinating journey to the India of the 1960s by a group of (then) young Peace Corps volunteers. Their stories are both illuminating and touching. But it also tells us so much about the times in which they served, about what Peace Corps was in its early days. A fascinating read into the minds of a youthful set f volunteers as well as an age of sacrifice and turmoil. Well worth the read!
