Sinopsis:

During the days of the U. S. Life-Saving Service, the predecessor to the U. S. Coast Guard, daring deeds and heroic efforts were the norm as literally hundreds of saves were made from Smith Island to Assateague in Virginia, Ocean City and Isle of Wight in Maryland and Fenwick Island to Indian River in Delaware. You'll read of the wreck of Benjamin Harrison's presidential yacht, Despatch, in 1891, the great storm of 1889, notable offshore wrecks and much more!Here is the fascinating story of islands and shipwrecks and heroes of the colorful life-saving service heritage that has been left to those who live on the Delmarva coastline and a lasting tribute to those men who repeatedly and willingly risked their lives, using primitive equipment against natural obstacles to save the lives of others
