Chain of Life presents a picture of the Aleut community of Unalaska-Dutch Harbor during the 1970s through the eyes of two young men — a Japanese-American pilot searching for his Aleut mother and an Aleut orphan seeking to reestablish contact with his family. Although the plot of Chain of Life is fictional, it has historical interest. It shows the Aleutian Islands during a period when this unique region was experiencing an economic invasion by seafood processors while still recovering from the ravages of World War II and the Aleut evacuation.

Dr. Elizabeth A. Tower and her husband, John, both young physicians, moved to Anchorage in 1954. A 1951 graduate of Case-Western Reserve School of Medicine, Elizabeth worked 25 years for the Alaska Division of Public Health. After retiring in 1986, Dr. Tower began researching and writing about prominent people in Alaska history. She was named Historian of the Year by the Alaska State Historical Society in 1996 for Icebound Empire, a history of the founders of the Alaska Syndicate and the Kennecott Copper Company. She has also written short biographies of Stephen Birch, Sheldon Jackson, Austin E. ?Cap? Lathrop, and William A Egan; a guide to skiing in Alaska; a history of Anchorage; and several prize-winning articles for Alaska History magazine.
