The Boys in the Boat (Young Readers Adaptation): The True Story of an American Team's Epic Journey to Win Gold at the 1936 Olympics - Daniel James Brown

Match a group of underdogs from humble backgrounds against a sinister, well-funded foe in a world-class athletic event… Sound like a movie script? It may be eventually, but it is actually a true tale almost too implausible to comprehend. In this edition for young readers, author Daniel James Brown tells the remarkable story of The Boys in the Boat (Viking, $17.99), a hardscrabble group of rowers from the University of Washington crew team with aspirations of competing in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Under the stern gaze of Adolf Hitler, these collegians made an unimaginable run for the gold that continues to inspire oarsmen and armchair athletes in the 21st century. Ages 10-14
