Wonderful story of a true American hero, who performed his duty and sacrificed himself so others can live. Loved how this tied his humble beginnings in Idaho to his success as one of the few Army Air Corp PBY pilots to serve in the Pacific theater. Very well written and thoroughly researched, plus the comparison to modern equipment and methods assisted the reader to better understand exactly what it meant to be the, "Rescue Man".

Interesting book though not particularly well written with a number of errors on equipment, aircraft and operational knowledge. What is good about the book is the telling of what these pilots and their crews did in the Pacific theater. Worth the read for that aspect.

Great, though sad, story of Bud Hayes. Never heard of him? Not surprising, but you should take the time to - he and his colleagues made up an unsung group of fliers whose job it was to rescue downed fliers during WWII. This book tells his story, as well as the story of the family who were left behind in a small town in Idaho. In a way, it's about all servicemen and their families in that war. His experiences were recreated as much as possible via access to letters he had written home. This will appeal to history buffs as well as the casual reader. All in all, a very good and informative read.

What a beautiful tribute to not only "Bud", but to all the heroes who served and sacrificed as "rescue pilots" during that terrible war. My father flew the B-24 "Liberator" in the Pacific during the war and I remember him telling stories about the bravery and dedication of these pilots! It is so refreshing to see someone finally research, document and write their story! EXCELLENT READ!!

This story was very close to home. It was very well written and holds your interest from beginning to end. We need to know more of the history of our country by reading real stories about actual happenings at that time. Mr. Lowenstein researches facts and writes as if he were sitting with you and telling this story Very enjoyable.

The Rescue Man provides an excellent account of wartime on a very personal level. It is well-researched and well-written. In reading The Rescue Man, I frequently thought that there must be many other such stories, as yet untold. In that regard, I found it to be inspirational.

Rescue Man is both a great piece of history and a remarkable story. I found myself immersed in Bud’s life on the family farm and felt bonded to him as he transitioned to the life of a pilot. Beautiful original photographs, and quotes from original documents and letters, vividly bring the story to life. I highly recommend this book, as Rescue Man brings to light the story of heretofore unheralded heroes who saved many lives in service to our country.
