Samenvatting

If you're in the mood for tales of heroism, here are the true accounts of shipwrecks and rescues by men of the U.S. Life-Saving Service and contemporary journalists. Although studded with ship-snaring sandbars, more than 100 years ago the New Jersey coast had few navigational aids. Many a wooden ship was beaten to pieces within hours by a savage nor-easter, and those aboard who reached the desolate beaches often died of exposure. But most of all, you will want to read the stories of rescues written by the men of the Life-Saving Service, forerunner of today's U.S. Coast Guard, who, time after time, risked their own lives to save the lives of strangers. Sales of this book will be used to create a monument to honor the selflessness and courage of these forgotten heroes of the New Jersey coast.
