If you enjoy reading non-fiction that captures you like a well-written novel, The Boys in the Boat is perfect for you. It's the saga of the University of Washington eight-man crew team as it overcomes countless odds - including the Great Depression, lack of support, and brutal weather - culminating in a trip to the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin to face the crew team that was Hitler's pride and joy. The book focuses on the stories of these hardscrabble young men and how they refuse to give up - even if it would have been easy to do so!
