In the winter of his 39th year, Robert Cherry,
a journalist and author of the acclaimed biography of an American sports legend
(Wilt Chamberlain), made a return visit to Africa.
His destination was the village in the Liberian rain forest where, fourteen years before, he had served as a Peace Corps Volunteer—the first American to live there. The result is Living Liberia,
which introduces the reader to a charming, exotic and unforgettable land.
