The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics is written by best-selling author Daniel James Brown, the author of two riveting historical novels The Indifferent Stars Above and Under a Flaming Sky.

The Boys in the Boat is a gripping story about American Olympic glory in Nazi Germany from unlikely heroes: sons of farmers, loggers, and shipyard workers, specifically Joe Rantz, a young man abandoned by his family at the age of 15.

The story is built from interviews with Joe and his family in addition to excerpts from journals from the young men who made history in the Olympics, primarily known for Jesse Owens victory in Berlin.
