Village in the Meadows (Çayriçi Köyü) in the Black Sea region of Turkey was Malcolm Pfunder's Peace Corps site and home for nearly two years in the 1960s. These memoirs about his time there spring from a desire to share the memorable, often humorous stories of the things that he did, and that happened there. The Peace Corps experience entailed a great deal of time spent outdoors and lots of freedom to experiment, with the vague impetus of 'Go forth and be relevant' as encouragement. Pfunder's narrative of his 'wonderful adventure' among the locals of that beautiful mountain village is a sympathetic story the villagers' way of life at the time and what he and his site partner Allen did to try to improve it, followed by Pfunder's interesting account of all the changes he has seen occur in the intervening years on periodic visits back to the village.

Malcolm (Sandy) Pfunder was born in Minneapolis in 1944. He graduated from Harvard College in 1965, from which he went directly to Peace Corps training in Portland, Oregon. After the Peace Corps, he graduated from Yale Law School, and has practiced antitrust law in Washington, DC since 1971. He met and married his wife in 1973. Sons Nicholas and Graeme were born in 1984 and 1989. He is Treasurer and a Director of Anatolian Artisans, a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of Turkish handicrafts and Turkish entrepreneurship in rural areas, and to raising the understanding and appreciation of Turkish arts and culture. He says he is 'too young to retire, but not by much, and the gap is closing.'

Written by:Malcolm PfunderA former Peace Corps volunteer writes about life in a Turkish village in the 60s..."Village in the Meadows is a place that has gripped me tightly since I first saw it, "writes Malcolm Pfunder in his memoir about life in Turkey.This village of 60s in Turkey s eastern Black Sea region was Pfunder s home for nearly two years in the mid-1960s during his Peace Cops service, and is place to which he maintains a special connection.In this memoir, he reflects back on his Peace Corps experience, offering the reader a firs-hand account of life in a small Turkish village and of his and his partner s rural community development efforts.With only a vaguely-defined mission to "Go forth and be relevant," they established a dental health program, formed a soccer club, tried unsuccessfully to grow vegetables, and embarked on various other projects.Pfunder weaves together journal excerpts, old letters, and his own recollections and anecdotes in narrating his "wonderful adventure" in Village in the Meadows.He presents a sympathetic--and at times humorous--account of the villagers' way of life at a time when Turkey was undergoing rapid change and villagers were often looked down upon by those who had moved to towns and cities.He also describes his periodic visits back to the village in later decades, along with his observations of the ways in which the village has changed since he lived there.
