A crew team at the University of Washington has their eyes set on the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany.
What a good book! I am surprised at how much I enjoyed it. There are facts and details galore, but it still reads/listens like a novel. The stories of the individual boys, the coach and the boat builder are all present, but the focus is on one crew member, Joe Rantz. The quotes of the boat builder were thoroughly enjoyed, and I learned a little bit more about Berlin in 1936, too.
