Pegge Parker lived two lives. Her second life was as a wife, mother and freelance journalist, but her first was that of a courageous young woman traveling the world. Before cell phones or email, when the world seemed much larger, Pegge moved from Washington D.C., where she was a newspaper columnist, to live in Alaska, China, India, and Europe, making a living as a freelance reporter.
