Thirteen Lessons that Saved Thirteen Lives: The Inside Story of the Thai Cave Rescue
by JOHN VOLANTHEN. As depicted in Ron Howard's hit film 'Thirteen Lives', this is the thrilling account of the dramatic Thai cave rescue which saved the lives of thirteen people, from one of the men who carried out the rescue.
The boys had been stranded by sudden, continuous monsoon rains while exploring the caves. With torrential rain pouring down and waters still on the rise, an army of rescue teams and equipment was deployed, including Thai Navy SEALs, a US Air Force special tactics squadron, police sniffer dogs, drones and robots. But it was British cave diver John Volanthen and his partner, Rick Stanton, who were first to reach the stranded team and played a key role in their ultimate rescue. (We also have Rick's book in stock!)
In this story of breathtaking courage and nerves of steel, John reveals how responding positively to the statement, 'But I can't...' by stating, 'I can,' led to one of the most incredible rescues of all time. He hopes his story will inspire the superhero in you. Meanwhile, he is always on standby for the next rescue.
