Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful What a great book of pure inspiration for achieving your dreams. Reading this book makes you feel that are present during the 30's. Tasting the dust in your mouth, freezing your fingers and toes when the temperatures drop, practising in storms, the wind pushing you backwards instead of aiding you. Powerful book that one can relate to, truly makes the reader be firm on achieving their dreams. Working class versus the Ivy League in motion, the poor becomes champions of the world, during a power struggle of countries involving everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Rowing Success! An inspirational true story of the working class University of Washington rowing team's journey from obscurity to victories against Ivy League teams and eventually to Olympic Gold in the 1936 Berlin Games. Life back in the 1930's was unbearable for most Americans with the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl which the author brings vividly to life to the reader. After reading this book, I have developed a greater appreciation for rowing realizing the training, mental toughness and team spirit required to succeed. I loved this book and eagerly await the film adaption.
