Overview

Singing on the Heavy Side of the World: A Peace Corps Ukraine Story by John Deever

When John Deever became one of the first Peace Corps volunteers in Ukraine, he found people living under an incredible weight-oppressive economic conditions, perpetually overcast skies, diet dominated by heavy root vegetables and alcohol. Yet in that place where even his young students carried the difficulty of daily life like a heavy burden, he also found new friends who took joy in the simplest pleasures and were thrilled to encounter the wider world through the first American most had ever known. With affection for his subject, Deever brings this little-known part of the world to life.
