Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dr. Heath Lowry indeed has an ongoing affair with Turkey. I know--I'm his sister-in-law. I've never seen a person work longer hours or harder in his profession, which means he must love it. And his memoir of the two-year stint (1964-1966) in a small village in northwest Turkey, the time which convinced him he must come back, is filled with adventures and insights into Turkish village life. You'll find this a delight to read.

We are preparing for a trip to Turkey and a friend recommended this book. It is well written, insightful, and just plain fun to read. Short vignettes capture the feeling of being a Peace Corps volunteer in a Turkish village 40 years ago. My husband also enjoyed it ... and we usually have different reading preferences!

A very warm, well written book. I strongly recommend it, especially to those who have a connection with Turkey or Turkish culture.
