Mike Masi began his adult life as a dancer performing in nearly every major concert hall in the United States including Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Knee damage led to stints as a waiter, accountant, oilfield roustabout and commercial airline pilot. He lives in an ancient hilltop village near the Adriatic Sea where life's most important things are at his doorstep: good food, good coffee, good wine, good people and a soundtrack of church bells marking the graceful passage of time. A violent donkey crash is highly unlikely. A DAY THAT GOD MADE is his first book. He is currently at work on a novel.
In a remote area of southwest Alaska a small cargo plane in heavy weather slams into the frozen ground at nearly two hundred miles per hour and disintegrates. Nine hundred square miles of white, empty tundra separates the crash site from the nearest human being. The airplane's sole occupant is it's gritty, discontented pilot and, improbably, he's alive, coherent and hopelessly trapped. This novella is a provocative, true story and evokes the short works of Jack London , while offering the possibility that luck may have another name.
