Situated in Central Africa, the nation of Gabon is a vibrant and mysterious place full of rich history, diverse culture, and stunning biodiversity. In the midst of the African rainforest, a Peace Corps volunteer from Montana is thrust into a new life of adventure and discovery. From close encounters with forest elephants to classroom teaching challenges, this vivid retelling of one man’s experiences takes readers on an extraordinary journey through daily life, cultural events, and ongoing conservation efforts, and shares his love affair with a country that will forever own a piece of his heart. An enthralling account of life in Gabon, particularly around the Ndougou Lagoon, this new book by Jason Gray leaves us with a powerful impression of having shared in his experiences. Gray’s underlying reverence for Gabon and its people comes out strongly in this recounting of his three years of work there with the Peace Corps and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF International), and shows the importance of understanding other cultures while enhancing individual awareness of the global community. Glimpses through the Forest: Memories of Gabon is an engaging read for eco and cultural travel enthusiasts, conservationists, nature lovers, and other adventure seekers.

From the Back Cover:

"Gray's chronicle of his journey to and into the mist-drenched coastal African nation of Gabon does what the best memoirs always do: Glimpses through the Forest offers us necessary and stunning news from some far part of the world." - Joe Wilkins, author of The Mountain and the Fathers: Growing Up on the Big Dry
 
"Glimpses through the Forest gives readers the Peace Corps experience personified-the exploration, the discovery, the fear, the joy and the life changing experience that we all attest to when we come home. A great read for anyone who wants a guided tour of Peace Corps life and a stunningly beautiful corner of Gabon." - Patricia McArdle, RPCV Paraguay, author of the Amazon Breakthrough Award-winning fictional war memoir, Farishta
