The Kidnapping of Jessica Buchanan and Her Dramatic Rescue by SEAL Team SixBook - 2013
A harrowing and heartwrenching memoir of humanitarian Jessica Buchanan's kidnapping by Somali land pirates, her three months in captivity, her rescue by the Navy SEALs, and her husband's extraordinary efforts to help bring her home. This book features the dramatic rescue of Jessica and her colleague by SEAL Team Six, the same group who killed Osama Bin Laden. She survived in captivity due to her training, her strong will, and her ease in dealing with her captors. Throughout the ordeal, every moment Jessica spent suffering in captivity was matched by that of her adoring husband Erik Landemalm, a humanitarian aid worker who carefully chronicled each and every day of the ordeal in letters he hoped to one day share with his wife. This book will detail their mutual journey during those torturous months.
