The Boys in the Boat

Author: Daniel James Brown
Stars: 5
Review by: BKF

An uplifting story of nine boys, with focus on one particular boy, who first rowed together for the University of Washington and went on to compete in the 1936 Olympics. A wonderful book that encompasses history, Germany in the 30s, the Depression, the Dust Bowl, the art of rowing and boat building, but most of all... the human spirit.
