Lovers of fine travel and adventure relish Scott Smith’s rich tale as a Peace Corps volunteer. Smith’s keen observations never sag in human interest as he confronts living on the edge of Pacific island paradise. It is a must listen for island lovers and anyone considering a journey to change the world or themselves.  

A heart-warming memoir from a Peace Corps volunteer on the outer edge of Pacific island paradise. 

Scott D. Smith returned from Micronesia and went onto Medill and a career as a reporter and writer for newspapers and magazines. He taught in a jail in Chicago and works as a public information officer in Minnesota.
