When a family outing in a private plane takes a tragic turn, a Memorial Day trip becomes an unforgettable 15 hours of danger, rescue efforts, and miracles.
On a clear Saturday morning, professional fire captain and private pilot Brian Brown, his wife, and younger daughter headed out in their Cessna Sky Hawk for a weekend with their elder daughter. But unexpected severe conditions send the craft into the treacherous War Eagle Idaho mountainside…a remote place that would make communication and rescue nearly impossible—if they survived.
This captivating story, featured on The Today Show, is about a family in crisis, emergency plans for survival, and the incredible orchestration of local, state, and national rescue workers who brave unpredictable obstacles to accomplish the unimaginable.
An intriguing account of faith and courage reminds readers that one’s darkest hour can become the landscape for miracles to unfold.
“I couldn't put this book down! It's a great read—well written and full of suspense, action, and emotion. It's a fascinating look into the world of first responders and the calculated risks they undertake to help those in need. It makes a compelling case as to how far the human spirit will go to survive and how much risk and effort other human spirits will make to try and save a fellow traveler in this human experience we call mortality. Rescued should be on the reading and Christmas gift list of all who delight in sitting down on a cold winter’s night with a book that both increases the pulse rate and warms the heart!”
—Mark Meaker, Fire Chief (Retired)
