Jessica Buchanan and Erik Landemalm

It was a story that captivated the nation in the fall of 2011. American aid worker Jessica Buchanan and a male Danish companion were kidnapped by heavily armed pirates in Somalia.

Finally, after 93 days, President Obama ordered Navy SEAL Team Six to try a rescue. And in January 2012, two dozen SEALs attacked the kidnappers’ camp, took all of them out, and rescued Jessica and her companion.

Now Jessica and Erik tell their harrowing story in a book called “Impossible Odds.”
