Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fourteen true, amazing, and inspiring stories of some of the bravest men and women youll ever meet
 
So Others May Live is the untold story of the U.S. Coast Guards quiet but resolute rescue swimmers. From deep ocean caves on the Oregon coast to the panicked and chaotic streets of post-Katrina New Orleans, here are their stunningly heroic stories—some of the greatest maritime rescues attempted since the program was started in 1985. These feats, told through the eyes of the heroes, reveal an understanding of how and why the rescuer, with flight crew assistance, risks his or her own life to reach out to save a stranger. Covering diverse environments—oceans, hurricanes, oil rigs, caves, sinking vessels, floods, and even Niagara Falls—this is truly a cant-put-it-down collection.

Synopsis:

Dramatic, compelling, downright unbelievable accounts of the Coast Guard's often unsung heros.
