Astonishing real-life rescue missions from on, under and above the earth from the award-winning team behind Survivors and Heroes. How far would you go to save a life? Scrambling from the wreckage of his school after an earthquake, a nine-year-old Sichuan boy rescued two unconscio...us friends. 'I was hall monitor,' he said afterwards. 'It is my job to look after my classmates.' Whether dragging a friend from a blazing car, masterminding a search far below the earth's surface, or recovering astronauts from an aborted space mission, Rescue reveals the ingenuity, courage and doggedness of the human spirit all over the world.
