When 26 U.S. Army nurses and medics boarded a cargo plane for transport in November 1943, they never anticipated a crash landing in Nazi-occupied Albania that would lead to their months-long struggle for survival.

They were part of the 807th Medical Air Evacuation Transport Squadron, and their untold story now unfolds in Cate Lineberry‘s book “The Secret Rescue.”

It was a drama that captured the attention of the American public. The group and its flight crew dodged bullets and battled blinding winter storms as they climbed mountains and fought to survive, aided by courageous villagers who risked death at Nazi hands to help them.

Eleven-year-old Norman Ollestad was on his way to pick up a trophy for winning a youth skiing championship on February 19, 1979. His father chartered a Cessna airplane to take him and Norman from L.A. to Big Bear City. With them were Norman’s dad’s girlfriend, and the pilot of the plane, four people in all — and only one would live to see the end of the day.

The plane wandered off course in a blinding blizzard and smashed into an 8,600-foot mountain. The pilot and Norman’s father were killed instantly. Sandra, the girlfriend, was badly hurt but survived, for a while. But only 11-year-old Norman, whose father had trained him to be rugged and bold, survived, by painstakingly working his way down the mountain, by his fingertips. Now, 30 years later, he’s ready to tell the story, in a book called “Crazy for the Storm.”

In 2003 actress and photographer Kris Carr was diagnosed with cancer. Not just any cancer, either — the rare and incurable kind. As she puts it, “I thought my life was over, I had no idea it was just getting started!”

Carr has made it her mission to give cancer a kick in the rear, and a makeover at the same time. First she made a documentary about her own medical journey. And now she has a book, filled with encouragement, advice, guidance and humor — her own, and that of over a dozen members of her “cancer posse.” It’s called “Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips.”
