Welcome to my website!

I am the author of A Journey of Courage
The Amazing Story of Sister Dorothy Stang.

In addition to serving as my personal site for author-related activities, here you will find resources for exploring Sister Dorothy’s life, as well as ways you can help with the plight of the people and forests of Anapú, Brazil.

The Million Tree Project

Inspired by Sister Dorothy, the people of Anapu and the Sisters of Notre Dame have undertaken an ambitious reforestation project. Watch this video, which explains it all.

A $15 donation will foster one tree, which will then be planted in Anapú,Brazil, where Dorothy lived and worked.

Donations are handled by The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur at:

Congregation Mission Office
Million Tree Project
30 Jeffrey’s Neck Road
