Daniel James Brown: Guts & Glory
Daniel James Brown’s book The Boys in the Boat has been called “Chariots of Fire with oars.” This longtime #1 New York Times bestseller and winner of the 2014 Nonfiction Book of the Year by the American Booksellers Association chronicles the journey of the 1936 University of Washington men’s crew team, who beat their California rivals, defeated the Ivy League’s top oarsmen, and ultimately stunned the world by upstaging Hitler at the Berlin Olympics. Against the grim backdrop of the Great Depression, these nine boys—sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers—reaffirmed the American notion that merit, in the end, trumps birthright.
