Rejected by his family at an early age, abandoned and left to fend for himself in the woods of Washington State, young Joe Rantz turns to rowing as a way out of his past.The following is an extraordinary journey, like Joe and eight other working-class boys exchange sweat and dust of life in the 1930s in America for the promise of glory at Hitler’s heart in Berlin.One by one, a remarkable young man struggles to regain his broken self-esteem, to dare once again to trust others and find his way home.Said in the context of the Great Depression, Boys in the Boat is narrative non-fiction of the first order; a personal story, full of lyricism and the unexpected, of the beauty that rises above the sweeping sweep of history, and of capturing the purest essence of what it means to be alive.Boats in the Boat is not only a great and inspiring true story; it’s a fascinating work from the story of Nathaniel Philbrick, author of The Heart of the Sea” I really can’t rave enough about this book.I have read the last fifty pages with white knuckles, and the last twenty-five with tears in my eyes “David Laskin, author of Blizzard’s The Children: The Long Way Home” exciting, thrilling story of one of the most remarkable rowing brothers Timothy Egan, author of “The Worst Difficult Moment”.
