About Nancy Lee: Nancy Hale Lee was born in the territory of Alaska prior to statehood in 1959. Her Father was a surgeon for the Alaska Railroad and her Mother taught music at the one high school in Anchorage, Alaska. She had two older rambunctious brothers, John and Jim. The family survived the 1964 Alaskan earthquake, moving to live in the Chugach Mountain Range. Nancy and her horse Smokey explored these mountains full of moose and bear, and participated in horse shows. Nancy married a bush pilot and became a private pilot herself while raising two children, Andy and Missy. She obtained her Associate of Arts Degree at University of Alaska in 1989. Moving to Colorado she obtained her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. Nancy is a grandmother and happily retired in San Antonio Texas.
About My Alaska: My two older brothers and I were born in the territory of Alaska which provided the great outdoors to adventure in. We did. I swam, downhill skied, climbed mountains, became a private pilot, got my scuba certification (In glacial ocean), fished, rappelled, snow machined, waterskied, jumped horses, kayaked, and can self arrest on a glacier. It was dangerous and SO much fun! It was a wonderful place to grow up.
With all the fun came injury, intrigue, accidents, avalanches, car wrecks, hypothermia, frostbite, plane crashes, and great loss of friends and family.
I earned my Bible College Diploma from Abbott Loop Christian Center in Anchorage, Alaska. I worked hard to earn my Associate of Arts Degree from University of Alaska and my Bachelor of Science Degree from Colorado Mountain College. I raised my two amazing children in a village called Talkeetna, and am a Grandmother! I now live in San Antonio, Texas, and I do Alaskan Shows. I am a grateful member of Cornerstone Church. I am available for speaking engagements.
My Alaska! is the first book I have written detailing some of my challenges and adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
