"The Quiet Rebel" tells the story of Peggy Dickenson's two years in the South American country of Bolivia where she served as a Peace Corps Volunteer from 1965-1967. These are her recollections as she struggled to learn the language and customs while making a contribution as a Peace Corps Volunteer secretary and teacher of Gregg shorthand and English. She lived 13 months in La Paz, the highest capital city in the world, nestled in the Andes Mountains at 12,000 feet above sea level; and 10 months in the eastern lowlands of Bolivia in semi-tropical Santa Cruz, an isolated city unspoiled by modern civilization with dusty streets and ox-drawn carts. Tag along with her on the adventure of a lifetime as she discovers the unique country of Bolivia, its people and its culture.
