Saved by the Boats


The Heroic Sea Evacuation of September 11 by Julie Glassman.     Illustrated by Steve Moors.

September 11,2001, was a dark day in US History. Amid the chaos of the attacks, sea captains & crews raced by boat to the tragic scene.  The largest sea evacuation in history began that day.  Nearly 500,000 people from New York’s Manhattan Island were rescued.  In this rarely told story of heroism, we come to understand that, in our darkest hours, people shine brightly as a beacon of hope.
