|Plot Summary of Braving The Waves - Rockaway Rises And Rises Again|
|"The true story of men from Rockaway who raced to save others on September 11th and then faced more tragedy two months later when Flight 587 crashed in their own neighborhood. The poignant, ironic, tragic, and heroic connections between the two events distinguishes it from other 9-11 books. BRAVING THE WAVES will stand alone because it puts a small town face on a national nightmare."
Kevin Boyle, Resident Scholar
