The Boys in the Boat

I listened to this audio book on a trip recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a nonfiction book that reads like great fiction. It is the story of the 1936 University of Washington rowing team that went on to the Olympics in Germany as things were becoming very difficult leading up to the United States entering World War II. It also took place during the depression and these young men endured many hardships to pursue their dreams. It is a great story of strong character, especially in the main character of the story. It includes fascinating descriptions of the "boys" and their families. I highly recommend it. Check our Catalog
