If someone had told me I would become emotionally invested is a book about rowing I would have thought they were crazy First I knew little about rowing and second I had no desire to learn A read for a group I am in had me picking up this book and I am so glad I did As many mothers have said try it before you decode you don t like itAn amazing balance of human interest history and sport Joe Rantz s story had my mothers heart wanting to give his ten year old self a big hug His story and the man he became is simply heart breaking and admirable He and the other boys wormed their way under my skin and I found myself holding my breath than once during their racesThe book went back and forth between the US and Germany The snow job they pulled on the world during the Olympics convincing many others that they were a progressive and fair nation There were small moments of humor too as when the German people greeted our athletes with a raised arm and shouted Heil Hitler our athletes raised their arms and answered back Heil RooseveltThe sport of course took up much of the book from the scull maker Popcock to the coach Al Ubrickson The hard work that went into training and of course the races competitions between the East and West coast The lives of the men in the boat and what happened to them after All in all I found this a stirring read a wonderful book Unti on Jared Kushner knew little about rowing and second I had no desire to learn A read for a group I am in had me picking up this book and I am so glad I did As many mothers have said try it before you decode you don t like itAn amazing balance of human interest history and sport Joe Rantz s story had my mothers heart wanting to give his ten year old self a big hug His story and the man he became is simply heart breaking and admirable He and the other boys wormed their way under my skin and I found myself holding my breath than once during their racesThe book went back and forth between the US and Germany The snow job they pulled on the world during the Olympics convincing many others that they were a progressive and fair nation There were small moments of humor too as when the German people greeted our athletes with a raised arm and shouted Heil Hitler our athletes raised their arms and answered back Heil RooseveltThe sport of course took up much of the book from the scull maker Popcock to the coach Al Ubrickson The hard work that went into training and of course the races competitions between the East and West coast The lives of the men in the boat and what happened to them after All in all I found this a stirring read a wonderful book

FREE READ ☆ The Boys in the Boat Nine Americans and Their Epic uest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics DOWNLOAD Ì MAKANAT.CO ¿ Daniel James Brown READ The Boys in the Boat Nine Americans and Their Epic uest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics Ding of commitment determination and optimismDrawing 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. This book was all right but there was just too much of it and the title isn t very descriptive It s really only about one of the nine boys in the boat plus their coach and the boatbuilder Oh and Hitler Perhaps the author came to the project 10 15 years too late only one of the main subjects survived to be interviewed by 2006 and that figure Joe Rantz makes the book worthwhile Having grown up dirt poor abandoned by his family with a strong work ethic and a charming loyal fianc e he s someone you can t help but root for But his story is buried in dozens of pages of descriptions of early twentieth century crew rivalries and what woods to make boats out of and a highly superfluous retelling of the early years of Nazi rule All of that material is less interesting than Joe Rantz s life and all of it is noticeably less immediate I often like nonfiction that weaves several strands together so my complaint here is chiefly about the comparative worthwhileness of the strands rather than the author s art in pulling them together Then there s the factor of the book s sheer length my sigh when I realized I was hundreds of pages in and only up to the start of junior year training must have been audible from Lake WashingtonI ve written in another review or two about how the events of WWII when you stare at them long enough go from incomprehensible to almost unbelievable But this book and In The Garden of Beasts conjures the opposite cognitive problem which is that it is impossible for the reader to put the facts of what happened after the 1930s out of our minds Both books are trading on a rather ghoulish dramatic irony of innocent upstanding Americans willingly visiting the evil Nazi state without realizing the depth of its coming crimes but neither manages to evoke the mindset that allowed the Americans to do so or the historical fact that the later events of WWII and Holocaust were not inevitable In Erik Larson s book I think there is a point to be made that a different man serving as ambassador might have measured up the danger wisely but where this book is concerned it would be absurd to say Joe Rantz and his fellows who had barely been out of Washington State should have been perceptive or that they could have done anythingEven whatever pleasure you might get from seeing an American team win under Hitler s nose has to be tempered by an appreciation of how meaningless this was in the long run The power in this story comes from the boys personal stories of overcoming Depression era obstacles so padding the book with discussions of Leni Riefenstahl and the fate of a particular German Jewish family after Kristallnacht draws the wrong kind of contrast by putting the race in the context of world history rather than personal achievementI m ultimately glad I read this because of its evocation of early twentieth century Seattle and its ability to make you cheer for Joe Rantz but I suspect it was propelled onto the bestseller list by attracting the attention of readers who perhaps don t read 25 30 nonfiction books per year and liked the drama of the Olympic win and implied impending wartime victory than I was bothered by the author s somewhat paint by numbers assembly of the elements of this story Buried Mountain Secrets kind of contrast by putting the race in the context of world history rather than personal achievementI m ultimately glad I read this because of its evocation of early twentieth century Seattle and its ability to make you cheer for Joe Rantz but I suspect it was propelled onto the bestseller list by attracting the attention of readers who perhaps don t read 25 30 nonfiction books per year and liked the drama of the Olympic win and implied impending wartime victory than I was bothered by the author s somewhat paint by numbers assembly of the elements of this story

I don t know why I put off reading this book so long except I was reading other things BUT when I went to visit my son who is the grandson of Joe Rantz and named his son Joe after him I began reading their copy and could not put it down Everything else I was reading was put aside I then realized I would not finish it before I had to leave and besides I wanted to OWN it So I got the Kindle version Besides my son was also reading it and we had two book marks his and mine in the book So it made things easierWow I was surprised at all the things I learned about Joe and Joyce I had not known before I remember holding Joe s Olympic gold medal long ago when I first married his son the first and last such medal I have ever held I remember because it made such an impression on me I remember the talk of the other boys and how they got together and I remember being invited to the planting of the tree for Joseph Rantz but did not go I don t remember why I have always proudly told everyone that my son s grandfather won an Olympic Gold Medal in Hitler s Germany in 1936 Who else can say that Not many But really I had no idea what was involved in that accomplishment But after reading this book I realize how very special those boys were and how important it was that it all came together the very special men who all had hard upbringings who had to scrape and scratch for every morsel they ever got the now legendary boat maker and the coxswain It took a very uniue mix of ingredients to make that win happen and take home that Gold Medal But it had to be told in a way that we could all see itfeel it get it And Daniel Brown did just that He interviewed Joe Rantz months before his death I remember a man who was tall handsome strong and always willing to help I remember as a young single mother after I had divorced his son how very warm and welcoming they were to me and how Joe would not only fix my broken down cars but would show me how he did it I remember when he fell from the tree when he was still out there too late in his life climbing trees and cutting them down I remember saying to myself if only I could find a man like him I would keep him He was my ideal man but I had no idea how he came to be that man So now I knowUpdate Sadly last December 15th 2016 At 115 pm Joseph Devon Rantz great grandson of Joe Rantz was killed in a car accident riding with his friend who was driving in the pouring rain The car hydroplaned in the rain crossed the median and hit a utility truck and then the bridge abutment Both boys were wearing seatbelts but the driver was thrown from the
