The Boys in the Boat – An epic journey from Depression-era America to the heart of Hitler’s Berlin – Just 99p 0 comments

An epic journey from Depression-era America to the heart of Hitler’s Berlin.
The Boys in the Boat is the story of Joe Rantz, a charismatic young man born dirt poor in the woods of Washington State, who dreams of escaping the challenges of the Great Depression, and a complicated family life full of painful memories. What follows is an extraordinary journey, as Joe and eight other young men exchange the sweat and graft and dust of ordinary life for the purer rigours of sport at its very highest level — a journey at the end of which lies a gold medal rowing race at the Berlin Olympics of 1936, in front of Hitler himself.

In The Climb, written with the renowned investigative reporter David Walsh, he vividly recounts the struggles, the rivalries, the battles, the comebacks. Finally he traces his path to triumph and his mission to help clean up cycling.
