Chief: The Life of Peter J. Ganci, a New York City Firefighter
Pete Ganci was Chief of the FDNY. He was funny, brave, determined, and, ultimately, selfless. On September 11, he died doing what he loved most: fighting fires and saving lives.
Chief is a chronicle of Ganci’s career, written by his youngest son, Chris. But it is also the story of what firefighters do every day. Illustrated with personal pictures from the Ganci family and professional photos from the FDNY, this is a portrait of a man who loved his job. And it is Chris’s effort to honor all those who sacrificed their lives on 9/11 and who have continued to risk their lives every day since.
