On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed one of the most remarkable emergency landings in aviation history when Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger skillfully glided US Airways Flight 1549 onto the surface of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. His cool actions not only averted tragedy but made him a hero and an inspiration worldwide.

At heart, it is a story of hope and preparedness -- that life"s challenges can be met if we"re ready for them -- reminding us that, even in these days filled with war, tragedy, and economic uncertainty, there are values still worth fighting for. - Publisher.
