A Brief History of St. Peter's By-The-Sea Episcopal Church (Google eBook)
Nancy J. Ricketts lives in the midst of her books overlooking her gardens on a quiet street in Sitka, Alaska. She walks to town, to the school and museum where she volunteers, to the two libraries and to church. She sings in the choir at St. Peter's and frequently performs with the Sitka Recorder Society. A long-time member of the Society of American Archivists, Nancy bears the title of Archivist Emeritus. Sheldon Jackson College Library from which she is retired, Kettleson Library and Isabel Miller Museum house collections she has brought into being. She has written a number of documented histories of institutions such as the Sitka Summer Music Festival, and the Sitka Conservation Society. Pauline Fredrickson A parish is always the home of wanderings that are the larger church. A parish history should call home those prodigals who have wandered elsewhere, bringing the history of the larger church along. Nancy Ricketts has done this very admirably for St. Peter's By-the-Sea. She presents the results of her detailed and thorough research in a well-organized, pleasant to read, and very informative history. It is the story of how this small parish, planted in the Anglican tradition, has come to thrive as an expression of the Gospel. Nancy shows the movements of the Church reflected and inculturated by the people of the rainforest of Southeast Alaska. This is an excellent history of the parish, an informative document for scholarship, and an interesting story of Southeast Alaska, from the 19th to the 21st century. Fr. Gordon Blue St. Peter's By-the-Sea
