Other Places Publishing is proud to announce a new series of travel guides that bring local insight, culture and adventure to the intrepid traveler. What makes our series of travel guides so unique is that each book is written and researched by long-time residents of each country. Not only do our writers live in-country, they are all former Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) having experienced a culture and people like few outsiders can. Peace Corps sends adventurous volunteers overseas for 27 months of service, including intensive cultural and language training. During their service, Peace Corps Volunteers live with local families, become intricate parts of their communities, and experience everything their countries have to offer. PCVs can hardly be considered as “expatriates,” but rather as locals. Living, working and playing all while making their host country a second home (in fact, many of our writers remained in-country after their service). PCVs are notorious for discovering hidden eateries fl ocked by working locals. They know those “most bang for your buck” guesthouses with million dollar views. And traveling across the country while making friends and discovering new spots is no problem. The perspectives and experiences of PCVs are truly unique.

Americans Do Their Business Abroad: The Peace Corps Latrine Reader Edited by Jake Fawson & Steve McNutt
12/01/2008, $16.95, ISBN 9780982261903, 192pp
“These are the stories that got me uninvited from a few dinner parties.” Herein reside seventeen stories (and one poem) written by Peace Corps Volunteers from across the generations and across the planet. Such writing often brings expectations for a certain type of book (heartwarming, uplifting, nice). Many books give you that experience. And we like those books. They are good books. The world needs those books. This is not that book. Americans Do Their Business Abroad is a collection of stories a little too goofy, a little too personal (and maybe a little too gross) to belong anywhere else. Latrines. Goat eyeballs. Pickpockets. Whimsy. Wisdom. And arson in the name of hygiene. Enjoy.
