About the Book

So Others May Live is the untold story of the U.S. Coast Guard's quiet but resolute rescue swimmers. From deep ocean caves on the Oregon coast to the panicked and chaotic streets of post-Katrina New Orleans, here are their stunningly heroic stories. In startlingly clear and exceptional writing, Martha LaGuardia-Kotite tells twelve heroic stories of the greatest maritime rescues attempted since the program began in 1985. These feats, told through the eyes of the heroes, reveal an understanding of how and why the rescuer, with flight crew assistance, risks his or her own life to reach out to save a stranger. Covering diverse environments--oceans, hurricanes, oil rigs, caves, sinking vessels, floods, and even Niagara Falls--So Others May Live is truly a can't-put-it-down collection.
About the Author: Martha J. LaGuardia-Kotite is a graduate of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and a writer with hundreds of magazines articles to her credit. This is her first book. She lives in Niceville, Florida.
