The unpredictable forces of nature have long been the cause of terrible disasters on sea and land, and in the air. Other disasters have been the result of human error. But all disasters have one thing in common - the tragic loss of life, bravery in the face of danger, and heroic rescue attempts. This collection tells the stories of some of Canada's worst disasters and, as a result, some of the country's most daring rescues.
