Abstract: On Unstable Ground is the story of the two years I spent trying to understand and navigate El Salvador—both as a place and a history. This is not, however, a memoir, per se. Rather, it is a history told through personal narrative. Each essay-chapter revolves around a particular experience that I had living in that country—a point of contact or clash—that magnified an important aspect of El Salvador’s character. Cumulatively, the essays piece together the story of a geographic journey as well as an exploration of history, a second journey that garners an evolving understanding of the events and circumstances that have shaped the nature of that place.
