Summary
"Fifty years after living in a remote Pakistan village as a Peace Corps volunteer, Leslie Noyes Mass returns to discover a much-changed Pakistan-and a village that still remembers her. She deftly interweaves her experiences from 50 years ago with her current day story as a volunteer training female teachers. Leslie Mass captures the heart and the attention of the reader with her story of Pakistanis in 1962 and those of a new generation who are engaged in building a sustainable educational system for their country's forgotten children. Back to Pakistan A Fifty-Year Journey is a compelling look into a country as it goes from its infancy into the 21st century"--Provided by publisher
