About The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown:

No one expected a ragtag crew team from the University of Washington to rise to the top of their sportmuch less go to the Olympics in Germany. It was the 1930s, at the height of the Great Depression and the dawn of the Nazi party's ascendance to power, and the school had never been able to beat the Ivy League teams, but coach Al Ulbrickson had big ambitionshe just needed the right athletes.

Over the next few years, the boys of the UW rowing team endured grueling days of training and countless setbacks. In the end, it was their collective dedication that brought them to compete in the 1936 Olympics in Berlinand beat the team rowing for Adolf Hitler.

A New York Times bestseller and the inspiration for the PBS documentary The Boys of '36, Daniel James Brown's The Boys in the Boat is a celebration of the human spirit and a compelling biography of a unique rowing team that brought home Olympic gold.

The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
