Dog Heroes of September 11th: A Tribute to America's Search and Rescue Dogs, now in its 10th Anniversary second edition, is the first and only major publication to salute the canines that served our nation in the recovery missions following the terrorists' strikes on America. A testament to man's best friend and his most critical role in American history, this special book pays tribute to 79 canine heroes and their handlers, retelling their heart-stirring stories, and photographically capturing many defining moments of the days that followed September 11, 2001. Award-winning author Nona Kilgore Bauer interviewed each of the handlers who participated in the recovery efforts at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, Shanksville, Penn., and the Fresh Kills landfill, and lovingly retells their stories of heroism and bravery. Recently updated and expanded with a foreword by former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani, over 100 new pages, and more than 150 new full-color photographs, also included are chapters on military working dogs in Iraq and Afghanistan, the therapy dogs who worked at Ground Zero, the SDF's new National Training Center, and post-9/11 rescue missions at home and abroad. A special section, written by selected 9/11 handlers, pays tributes to their canine partners who passed away after their recovery missions. This book supports the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF) in its mission to produce certified search and rescue teams to protect our whole nation, and a portion of the proceeds of Dog Heroes of September 11th benefit the SDF.
