FROM SARAH

In this book we encounter the story of Joe Rantz, a boy who suffered mightily during childhood but rose up to grab life by its horns anyway. This is a true story teen athletes will especially enjoy. I recommend the Young Reader's Adaptation.

FROM THE PUBLISHER

Out of the depths of the Great Depression comes the astonishing tale of nine working-class boys from the American West who at the 1936 Olympics showed the world what true grit really meant. With rowers who were the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew was never expected to defeat the elite East Coast teams, yet they did, going on to shock the world by challenging the German boat rowing for Adolf Hitler.
