    Story

    Buck Brannaman is truly inspirational and hearing his experiences gives me great joy and hope. I wish everyone could read/listen to this book so that they would understand that one should treat others, no matter how many feet they have, with respect and kindness! And that there are NO excuses for taking out aggression on another being!

    Daniel James Brown's robust book tells the story of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic games in Berlin, 1936.

    Story

    The story encompasses so much history that has been pushed aside by time. I felt for each person on the team including the coaches and to know that this truly happened was awesome. The pace and narrater were wonderful. And if you are from Washington or north idaho a sense of pride will follow you once you hear this great book.
