Written by Carolyn Matthews.
Published by Dundurn Press, 2005.


This book of true stories shows ordinary people in extraordinary events — a ski accident, a missing child, thrilling sea rescues — that take place from snow-bound Labrador to the coast of California. It is about the lives of rescuers who search for life's meaning while engaging in deeds of heroism and compassion. It is about the aftermath of rescue. There are stories from each Canadian provinces and from the United States. Each is a story of action and inspiration.
"Carolyn Matthews' stories take the reader on a journey not only across Canada and its incredible array of landscapes, but also through the range of human experience. Tragedy, bravery, loss and good fortune come together in this book, encapsulating the extremes faced by ordinary people in extraordinary situations." – T. Keith Edmunds, literary critic, Brandon Sun
