The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel James Brown
The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics

RockShadow, October 2, 2013

Spellbinding and inspirational story of nine golden boys and their times, for both rowers and non-rowers like me. Loved learning details about the Pacific Northwest, Seattle, and the athletes during depression years. The background of the 1936 Olympic Games in Germany was well done, with a different angle of looking on those times. I found the insight into racer selection very interesting, but, of course, the personal stories of the athletes will stay with me forever!
