A beloved story about the Greatest Generation

freshly adapted for the next generation

Berlin, 1936. The Olympic finals of the eight-oared rowing race. Germany, Italy, USA. The American boat touches the finish line first, beating all odds and sending Hitler away in a silent rage. In the midst of the Great Depression, the nine rowers showed the world what true grit really meant. They were western, working-class boys who never expected to beat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did. At the center of the tale is Joe Rantz, whose personal struggle—and ultimate triumph—captures the spirit of his generation, the one that would prove in the coming years that the Nazis could not prevail over American determination and optimism.

 

This deeply emotional yet easily accessible middle-grade adaptation of the New York Times bestselling The Boys in the Boat shows readers how we can find hope in the most desperate of times.

Synopsis:

A highly provocative, mindbending, beautifully designed, and visionary look at the landscape of our rapidly evolving digital era.

Synopsis:

Gore's bestselling book is now adapted for perhaps the most important audience of all: today's youth, who have no choice but to confront the planetary emergency head-on. Bursting with color photos, this book clearly explains global warming. (Environmental Studies)

I LOVED IT it was great reading something like this- I am really into being eco-friendly. I have also read "Chew on This" the more young-adult and/or middle readers version of "Fastfood Nation"- also terrific and yet discusting. I am proud to say the I am a vegitarian.
