Danay Phillips, a Mt. Edgecumbe High School counselor from 1955-58, lived in Sitka, Alaska within view of St. Michael's Russian Orthodox Cathedral shown on the book's cover.In addition, she served as liaison to all territorial Native American schools.
An Omaha native born in 1927, she survived all these—the crash and explosion of an Alaskan plane, a broken cable on her car ascending the Zugspitze, the sudden death of her fiancé, blown-up oil tanks in Venezuela, the puncturing of her heart's atrium by a misplaced catheter—and more.
How did she survive? Faith in God and a passion for helping others make use of their talents during her 40-year teaching career.
The book's beginning—Danay's childhood—will keep you turning pages.So will the section on her Alaskan adventures.
