[Panama City]: Imprenta Nacional, Panama, R.P. / InterAmerican Women's Club, 1957. Paperback. 165p., illustrated with fuzzy photos and cartooned humor, a small softbound in overlapping 7.5x5.5 inch decorated wraps. The overlapped edges are worn, the buff areas of covers have picked up mild dust-soil, item is clean within and quite sound, a good to very good copy. Find advice on food preparation (oil your hands, veggies here may have harsh skins), hiring ("Iguana stew is my specialty"), dressing yourself and your kids for the weather. Pointers for military, diplomatic, and undiplomatic families who have come to live with and wring coin from the hard hands of peasants. Cartooned illustrations feature lithe but buxom young tourist ladies in situations with Panamanians. A preliminary notice by the Club thanks Union Oil and Esso (as well as local hostelries, jewelers and newspapers, who get mentioned in the text) for "donations toward the cost of publishing this book
