THE DAY THE WORLD CAME TO TOWN: 9/11 in Gander, Newfoundland

Jim DeFede, Author . HarperCollins/Regan $24.95 (256p) ISBN 978-0-06-051360-3

Journalist Defede calls our attention to a sidelight of the events of September 11, when the town of Gander (pop. 10,000) was overwhelmed by more than 6,500 air travelers grounded when U.S. airspace was shut down. For a week, DeFede relates, the locals provided food, shelter and supplies and reassurance; "they placed their lives on hold for a group of strangers and asked nothing in return." Here the generous Newfoundlanders get due recognition. Photos. (Sept.)
