In A Peace Corps Memoir: Answering JFKs Call, he reminisces about the organizations early years- surviving a very demanding training program, and then finding his niche in a strange culture as a newly minted Peace Corps Volunteer in a small town in the Amazon basin of Bolivia in the early 1960s.

In fifty-two well-considered and thoughtfully penned chapters like Progress at Last, Government Ousted, Plane with PC Workers Missing, and Trinidad Farewell, Sack takes an easy-to-read chronological approach. He thoughtfully blends romance and humor to recall the enormity of what it was like to endure selection and training and ultimately become a Peace Corps Volunteer after having witnessed JFKs call to arms in a speech at the University of Michigan in 1961.
