This book is about Newfoundland and Labrador’s response following 9/11. For the first time, Mac Moss tells the stories of people across the entire province—from Stephenville to Gander, to Goose Bay and St. John's—who pitched in and helped approximately 13,000 stranded passengers in 2001 after terrorist attacks in the United States changed the world forever. He has interviewed municipal and service organization leaders of that time, former airport personnel, members of the RCMP and Canadian Red Cross, educators, clergy, and many others who volunteered to give the passengers shelter, food, laundry, and love. This book captures true accounts that, until now, have never been told. Read about professionalism, dedication, laughter, caring, and grief as told by those who made this remarkable story happen. All of these individuals are heroes who have not yet been recognized. This is their story.

"Let us say that all the folks of Newfoundland made at least 204 ambassadors out of all of us on US Airways Flight 27. We love all of you, and we will come up for more of your home-cooked love and affection.” ~ Justin and Christyl B., Pittsburgh

"The Lord took care of us throughout the entire journey. He brought us to one of the most beautiful places on earth, and He provided ‘angels’ to take care of us.” ~ Amy and Chris Prideaux, passengers hosted in St. John’s

“We had nothing, and they gave us everything!” ~ John Chips, passenger on US Air Flight 741

“They are the gold standard of humanity.” ~ David Korpan

The work you put into this wonderful book is simply amazing. I have told many, many people that yours is the best history of what happened in Newfoundland than anything I have read through the years. So, thanks a million! Shirley Brooks-Jones Passenger, Delta Flight 15 (9/11/01) Founder & Coordinator, Lewisporte Area Flight 15 Scholarship -- Shirley Brooks-Jones --
