This was a great book about overcoming obstacles. Following the main character's journey from being a poor and ignored child through adulthood to become an American hero was truly amazing to read about. The best part is that it is a true story. I love uplifting books like this.
A must read for any fans of sports, Olympics, or the depression era. Brown has written a truly amazing book in telling the story of these rowers. I couldn't put it down! Would recommend to all lovers of books.
