Five Hundred Feet Above Alaska is the story of Peter Connors, a young man who moves to Alaska in pursuit of his dream of becoming a commercial pilot. While the pilots in Alaska are known for their superior airmanship, they are also famous for their disregard of the rules that govern them. Determined to ultimately be an airline pilot in “the lower forty-eight,” Peter vows to walk the straight and narrow. Yet, when Peter is the only pilot available to rescue a comrade who crashed in the snow-covered tundra, he is forced to compromise the very ethics that define him.
Over time, Peter’s competence begins to overpower his regard for the rules. Slowly, almost imperceptibly, Peter begins a downward spiral. The life Peter had carefully constructed for himself is at odds with the “live or die” flying of Alaska. Over the course of a year of doing battle with the elements on a daily basis, armed only with his plane, his wits and his skill to bring him home every night, Peter must decide whether it is more important to embrace life or cheat death.
The twenty-first century is a time of great contradiction. More than ever before, magic is prevalent in our society. Everything from underaged wizards attending school, to deadly battles to see who will rule mythical kingdoms are everywhere in entertainment today.
At the same time, technology has advanced at a rate that our forbearers never would have thought possible. We have split the atom, gone to the moon and put all of the world's information in our pockets.
How could such contradictions ever co-exist? How could we keep our belief in Santa Claus?
