Overview
A young American joins her husband on a pre-Peace Corps mission to newly independent Nigeria: she to work in the Ministry of Education, while he joins a team of economists sent by the Ford Foundation. Gretel's letters home give an inside view of the fledgling government. Full-color slides bring alive the vibrant cultures of the new nation.

Life among British civil servants, visiting foreign diplomats and speculators, and daily interactions with the Nigerian people are the heart of this story. Included in Clark's anthropological musings, and economic development theories, is the birth of her first child in a West African government hospital.
