A time that was…” (published by Xlibris) is the story of the life and emotions of a totally different culture. Author Philip S. Salisbury relates the life of a Peace Corps volunteer in Liberia, West Africa from 1962 to 1964. He shares his experience and perspectives from his unique position to witness and appreciate the culture.

An excerpt from the book reads:

“Clan Chief Tengbe Woolie was able to get to the heart of his concerns. He lamented what was happening to his tribe and its people. The Poro and Sande bush societies for the education of males and females, respectively, were being replaced by white man’s education. Young men were not remaining with their tribes but were going to Monrovia.” — “A time that was…,” p. 20

The book offers a peek into the country’s past and its people’s views as they underwent many changes. Salisbury notes that Liberia has recently assumed a heightened importance to the West and to China. This book should help readers, especially those in the West, in developing their perspective towards the country.
