"The Boys in the Boat"  by Daniel James Brown.
 

The Boys in the Boat


by Daniel James Brown

 

Daniel James Brown’s robust book tells the story of the University of Washington’s 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic games in Berlin, 1936.

The emotional heart of the story lies with one rower, Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not for glory, but to regain his shattered self-regard and to find a place he can call home. The crew is assembled  by an enigmatic coach and mentored by a visionary, eccentric British boat builder, but it is their trust in each other that makes them a victorious team. They remind the country of what can be done when everyone quite literally pulls together—a perfect melding of commitment, determination, and optimism.

Drawing on the boys’ own diaries and journals, their photos and memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream,
The Boys in the Boat is an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate story of nine working-class boys from the American west who, in the depths of the Great Depression, showed the world what true grit really meant. It will appeal to readers of Erik Larson, Timothy Egan, James Bradley, and David Halberstam's The Amateurs.

Summer Reading Super Hero Party!!!

Today was our last day of our Summer Reading Kids programs! We've had so much fun this year and today was no exception. We read the book "My Superhero" by Chris Owen. Then we talked about our super powers and the super powers that we would love to have. Some kids mentioned the powers they already have are generosity, imagination, and snuggling. Some of the desired powers were invisibility, ability to fly, and duplicating ourselves! Then we made some super powerful arm cuffs...some even had communication devices and lasers in them! Then we made some super hero capes to help with our many super hero obligations....which included difussing balloon bombs! We also named our winners of our guessing jars of M&Ms and army men. Crazy, fun filled summer reading Super Hero Party today!

----------
FYI----In case this book looks familiar to some of you.....this was also our book club book for July. However, with everyone's busy summer schedules, not many people were able to read and it was decided that we would try it again for our August book club meeting.  :)


"The lives of young Culver, his twice-married mother, and his charismatic uncle Jake have been always overshadowed by the death of Culver's father in a fishing accident. When a suspicious fire destroys the town mill and three murders occur, Culver is engulfed by the dangers he finds lurking in the place he'd come to call home. Love, death, coming of age, and Native American spiritual beliefs flow together with the forces of nature in this novel."
