"A must-read for anyone who loves the water or cares about the safety, security, and stewardship of our nation from sea to shining sea." --Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

"This is the first book to give a comprehensive look at America's premier lifesavers and forgotten Armed Service." --Anchorage Daily News

"Readers will agree with the author that the Coast Guard is the only American military service that needs more money and publicity." --Kirkus Reviews

"They say that 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help' is the ultimate oxymoron. But as this vivid book makes powerfully clear, in the case of the Coast Guard it's the simple truth. Stow this volume next to the chart case." --Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy
