Product Information

Daniel James Brown

At the center of the tale is Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, whose personal quest captures the spirit of his generation--the generation that would prove in the coming years that the Nazis could not prevail against such determination and optimism. The story of the rag-tag crew from Washington State out of Seattle, who had to overcome the prejudices and blatant cheating of the Eastern establishment, to represent the USA in the Olympic Games in Berlin 1936 in rowing the Eight. In Berlin, they went on to win the Gold Medal in very difficult circumstances.

AN INSPIRING READ.
