Tales of AlLynne Cox, internationally famous for swimming the world’s most difficult waterways without a wetsuit, and able to endure water temperatures so cold that they would kill anyone else, recognizes and celebrates all forms of athleticism in others, human or otherwise. And when she saw a video of a Newfoundland dog leaping from an airborne helicopter into Italian waters to save someone from drowning, Cox was transfixed by the rescue, and captivated by the magnificence, physicality, and daring of the dog.

TALES OF AL is the inspiring story of Lynne’s adventures on Italy’s Lake Idroscalo, at the famed Italian School of Water Rescue Dogs (SICS), which has trained over 300 dogs for sea, land, and air rescue (about 30 rescues are carried out along the Italian coast during each swimming season). There, Lynne meets the dog at the center of our story: Al, an irresistible (and slightly untrainable) chocolate Newfoundland. And follows her journey to becoming an expertly trained—and highly specialized—water rescue dog.Lynne COx
