One Nation: America Remembers September 11, 2001
by Rudolph W. Giuliani (Introduction), Life Magazine (Editor), editors of LIFE magazine $20.97 *
During our nation's most trying times, it has been LIFE that has provided the images that help us understand, remember, and in the process, renew. Now the editors of LIFE have assembled a moving, brilliantly illustrated account of tragedy and triumph. Beginning with the history of lower Manhattan, the book explains what happened on September 11, profiles many of the heroes, victims and rescuers (fireman, police, doctors, and rescue dogs among them), and paints an inspiring portrait if a nation and world coming together in sadness, pride and resolve. Former Mayor Rudy Guiliani provides the introduction for a most compelling book.
