Cast aside by his family at an early age, abandoned and left to fend for himself in the woods of Washington State, young Joe Rantz turns to rowing as a way of escaping his past. What follows is an extraordinary journey, as Joe and eight other working-class boys exchange the sweat and dust of life in 1930s America for the promise of glory at the heart of Hitler’s Berlin. Stroke by stroke, a remarkable young man strives to regain his shattered self-regard, to dare again to trust in others – and to find his way back home.
Ein historischer Roman, der bei Kritikern und Lesern gleichermaßen ein riesiger Erfolg geworden ist. „Shaped by the social, economic and political challenges of the Dust Bowl, Depression and the simmering hostilities in Europe, these young men developed the „harmony, balance and rhythm“ necessary not only to triumph in Berlin but to thrive in life.“ (Leser) (19.928 (!)
