Running Toward Danger is an exceptional look into the lives of journalists, on the day that tested each of their limits as professionals and as people. The Newseum, with award-winning authors Cathy Trost and Alicia Shepard, have captured the suspense, adventure, grit, and emotion of September 11 as seen through the eyes of the countless members of the media who risked their own lives to get the story. This is an emotional ride, told in a timeline format that will have you riveted from page to page. We get the perspective from each of the sites of that fateful day: newspaper and radio reporters in New York City, some so close they prayed for the people they saw jumping from the World Trade Center; media at the Pentagon crash site, converting a nearby gas station into a press hub to ensure the latest details got to the public; and the first response at the Pennsylvania site, where the men and women of the press came expecting a huge scene, and found only a hole in the ground. Countless pictures accompany their stories, some never before seen, all taking you back to that day, as you see the scene as they saw it, as it was happening. This book is a testament to the tenacity of the American press, the virtue of the men and women who risked everything to get the story, and get it right.Was this review helpful?
