David Read Barker is the editor of Volunteers in the African Bush - Memoirs from Sierra Leone (2012).  The book compiles remembrances of Peace Corps volunteers who served in Sierra Leone during 1965-67.  Contributors' stories are interesting personal accounts of living in difficult circumstances yet trying to make a difference.  Chic Dambach, former president of the National Peace Corps Association, describes Barker's book as follows: "Volunteers in the African Bush provides returned Peace Corps volunteers an opportunity to reflect on their experiences.  It is a fascinating read, and it provides a vital new perspective on the lasting impact of Peace Cops service."  David Read Barker is also author of the Black Sea Cruising Guide (2012).
