Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 061556366X, Paperback)This dramatic account of ten years in Uganda, East Africa recounts living under the demonic rule of Idi Amin Dada through the eyes of a former Peace Corps Volunteer married to a Ugandan. Because she is a black, Sara Armstrong blended in and moved freely around the country witnessing many things that journalists and diplomats were not permitted to see. She traveled in taxis and buses, she shopped in the local markets, and lived as ordinary Ugandans lived. Sara witnessed brutality and courage and had an unprecedented view of the destruction of a once prosperous nation. It is a spellbinding and fascination journey from the first day Sara arrived at Peace Corps training full of hope and expectation to the day ten years later when she and her family escaped the fear and brutality of a merciless dictator.
