Daniel James Brown’s book The Boys in the Boat has been called the “Chariots of Fire with oars.” Winner of the 2014 Nonfiction Book of the Year by the American Booksellers Association, it chronicles the journey of the 1936 University of Washington men’s crew team – beating their California rivals, defeating the Ivy League’s top oarsmen, and ultimately stunning the world and upstaging Hitler at the Berlin Olympics. These nine boys – sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers – reaffirmed the American notion that merit, in the end, trumps birthright.
