KIRKUS REVIEW

In this collection of ten episodes, Ronald Clark, for the excitement of his reader, portrays characters at moments of extreme peril. A white girl is rescued after five years of captivity from the Mojave Indians; a holocaust is subdued on the Thames; death is evaded on a peak of Mont Blanc; victims of a wrecked ship are saved; men are retrieved from beneath the sea and beneath the earth, rescuers fight a glacier, a storm, a flood; Mussolini is rescued from his captors. Exciting and informative, this anthology of crises illustrates the boundless possibilities of human initiative and courage. Great Moments of Rescue is memorably exciting and affirmative.
