"Premature middle age escaped us and high adventure called..." begins the author in this
humorous memoir about how Hard-Times became Good-Times. Following a job loss, a
worn picture postcard ignites adventures South of the Frontera leading to the
Peace Corps. This is a vivid description of Mexico and Central America between
1975 and 1977. From basking in the Sea of Cortes alongside a pelican to
learning to dance in Honduras, an original voice rings true with youthful
curiosity and down-home wit and insight.
