Publisher's summary

So Others May Live: Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers: Saving Lives, Defying Death is the award-winning untold story of the US Coast Guard's 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.

In startlingly clear and exceptional writing, Martha LaGuardia-Kotite tells 12 heroic stories of the greatest maritime rescues attempted since the program began 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, So Others May Live is truly a can't-stop-listening collection.
