Pioneers: The Story of Oswego County’s Search and Rescue Team

by Jim Farfaglia

Saturday, December 10 at 2:00 pm

Jim Farfaglia, PioneersIn the summer of 1971, while vacationing with his family in the Adirondacks, a little boy disappeared. Before the days of 911, his parents frantically reached out for help, but despite nearly one thousand people heeding their call, without trained search and rescue personnel, the child was never found. The story would have ended there if one man hadn’t decided the boy’s legacy should not be only tragic, but also hopeful. Gathering others who believed as he did, without any idea how to begin, this group formed New York State’s first professional volunteer search and rescue team. This is the story of their pioneering accomplishment.

Jim has interviewed founding and current members of the team and their compelling stories cover some of the most intriguing lost person searches our area has experienced. Meet some of the members of the team, past and present, who will be in attendance. Come meet the author and help celebrate the launching of Pioneers! All profits of the book will go to the Pioneers as they continue to serve our region.

Call the bookstore to pre-order your copy today! Copies will be available at the event while supplies last.
