The Boys in the Boat

The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown
“The Boys in the Boat” was a terrific read! The hard scrabble life of Joe Rantz and his University of Washington crew mates was inspiring. Daniel James Brown weaves history and biography to tell the story of an Olympics dream come true, during the 1936 Berlin Olympics. I also learned some interesting facts regarding Ran Laurie and the British Olympic team of 1936. Sure to become a movie!
