Attack on New York City
author: Wilborn R. Hampton
A blind man and his dog struggling to escape from the burning North Tower, a company of firefighters risking their lives, an ordinary citizen turned rescue worker -- each person endured a personal nightmare, and each carries a separate memory. Through interviews and accounts of survivors, heroes, and terrorists, as well as his own story, seasoned reporter Wilborn Hampton creates an intimate portrait of life and loss, and offers a deeper understanding of that tragic day.
Back matter includes a bibliography and a filmography.
