Description

His sense of smell is a hundred times greater than a human's. He can pick up the scent of a missing hiker from miles away, or of a drowning victim on the surface of a swiftly moving river. He can detect a living child buried under collapsed concrete. His every movement devoted to his job and his human partner, he is one of the most finely tuned, dynamic animals on earth. He is a German shepherd trained for search-and-rescue missions. And for one woman, a slender New Jersey mother of four, these remarkable dogs, and the dramatic and dangerous rescues they undertake together, have become a way of life.Caroline Hebard's story is a true life tale of adrenaline-surging searches and grueling rescue missions in some of the world's most tragic landscapes - from earthquakes in Japan and Mexico to bridge collapses and floods in Tennessee and New York. As co-founder of the volunteer U.S. Disaster Response Team, Caroline is ready to leave her home at a moment's notice, never knowing how far she and her dogs will travel or what challenges and dangers they will face.show more
