In this collection, Joseph Cummins takes you inside the lives of the premier mountain rescue team in Aspen, Colorado; belts you into the seat of a rescue helicopter; puts you behind enemy lines with LRRPs search for a colleague trapped by the North Vietnamese Army in Cambodia; and brings you into the hearts and minds of New York City police and firefighters in the desperate hours following the September 11th attacks.

These twenty gripping tales of salvation and loss include the work of well-known authors such as Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm and Mark Bowden's Black Hawk Down. But lesserknown authors with stories no less exciting are also included. From the dramatic story of a dog team's efforts to find a teenage girl lost in the Rockies to the miraculous rescue of submariners trapped at the bottom of the North Atlantic, THE GREATEST SEARCH AND RESCUE STORIES EVER TOLD is human drama at its most satisfying.
