This is a work of non-fiction that reads like a novel.
The “Nazi Olympics” of 1936 are remembered for the stunning victory of Jesse Owens. But a group of young men from the state of Washington also made a splash. After winning the national collegiate rowing championship — held in the Hudson at Poughkeepsie — a team of mostly rural rowers traveled to Berlin to take on the best in the world.
The book will introduce you to a host of characters you’ve probably never heard of.
Together, they would overcome incredible odds and make history.
