- Concrete Examples
At the historic Olympic Games in Berlin in 1936, the world saw Nazi power at its height. The members of the US rowing team were unassuming boys from the University of Washington, underdogs who became American varsity rowing champions. Best-selling author Daniel James Brown crafts a detailed, passionate account of the team’s challenges and triumphs seen through the eyes of Joe Rantz, one of “the boys in the boat.” Brown’s rich prose illuminates the sport’s beauty and the resilient hearts of the young teammates who gave it their all.
