Overview

Etta Jones was not a soldier or a spy. She was a teacher on the remote Aleutian island of Attu. She and her sister moved to Alaska in 1922 from the East coast of the USA. She planned to stay only one year as a vacation, but this 40 something year old easterner met a man and fell in love. She married and for nearly twenty years taught in remote Alaskan villages including their last posting on Attu Island at the far end of the Aleutian island chain. Etta's life changed forever on that Sunday when the Japanese invaded Attu and Etta became a prisoner of war. She was taken from American soil to Japan and given up for dead. This is the story of brave American, a woman of courage and resolve with inextinguishable spirit.
