The Boys in the Boat
Reviewed by- linda (2016/12/21, 10:47 AM)
I always love it when a story has it's roots in truth and this is just such a story. It's told primarily from the viewpoint of Joe Rantz, one of the nine men from The University of Washington's rowing team, competing in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. This is a real life account of overcoming obstacles and doing whatever it takes to win. The author weaves in many historical events of the time and gives the reader strong characters. Winning a gold medal is not easy; it requires hard work, dedication and team work. This book lets the reader feel what it's like to want, work for and achieve something. Very inspiring.Back.
