Search and Rescue

November 28th, 2022

Whether adventuring in deserts or woods, mountains or swamps—whatever the locale—there’s likely a Search and Rescue team nearby, ready to help if called upon. What SAR units accomplish is often hair raising but so too is what survivors endure as told in Cathalynn Labonté-Smith’s collection of easy-to-read stories Rescue Me: Behind the Scenes of Search and Rescue (Caitlin $26) that, she says, “will leave you shaken and in awe of people’s will to survive.” Labonté-Smith takes readers behind the scenes of some of North America’s riskiest SAR operations. From rescuing avalanche victims in blinding snowstorms, to climbing into vehicles teetering on cliff edges to free passengers from mangled metal or crossing wafer-thin ice to save an injured cross-country skier, these thrilling first-hand accounts will forever change how you prepare for your next outdoor adventure. 9781773860947
