Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 147974140X, Paperback)

Beginning before jets flew into Liberia, and ending before the Sgt. Doe coup, this is the true story of the Holtam family, told by the wife/mother/music teacher. She tells of her husband's work to help the Liberian people through agriculture, the education of their children, and friends made while living in four locations. Tales of African animals, travels by Landrover, stories of births and deaths, accounts of "making international music" . . . Return to the heyday of church missions and the arrival of the Peace Corps, as seen through the eyes of a family that loved Liberia.
