BOYS IN THE BOAT BROWN, DANIEL JAMES Berlin, 1936. The Olympic finals of the eight-oared rowing race. Germany, Italy, USA. The American boat touches the finish line first, beating all odds and sending Hitler away in a silent rage. In the midst of the Great Depression, the nine rowers showed the world what true grit really meant. They were western, working-class boys who never expected to beat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did. At the center of the tale is Joe Rantz, whose personal struggle--and ultimate triumph--captures the spirit of his generation, the one that would prove in the coming years that the Nazis could not prevail over American determination and optimism. This deeply emotional yet easily accessible middle-grade adaptation of the New York Times bestselling The Boys in the Boat shows readers how we can find hope in the most desperate of times.
