Reviews

Boyne (Essential Sculling), a former women's varsity rowing coach at Tufts University, has written an exhilarating story about the early days of the U.S. women's national rowing team. Noting that society in the 1970s was radically different from today's, the author details some of the obstacles faced by women attempting to enter the male-dominated sport of rowing, especially in the Ivy League. The reader also learns a great deal about the complexity of rowing eights, including the technique and teamwork involved. Boyne's story takes us to the 1975 World Championships, where the U.S. women's team surprised the rowing world with a silver medal, carries forward to the 1976 Olympics, and concludes with a where-are-they-now section. Well written, direct, and effective, this book conveys the rowers' and coaches' skill, tenacity, energy, and enthusiasm for their sport. Recommended for public libraries, especially where rowing is popular.ÄKathy Ruffle, Coll. of New Caledonia Lib., Prince George, BC Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

"A thrilling account of the U.S. Women's Crew as it prepared to compete in the 1975 World Championships in rowing ... sets the heart a-racing." --Kirkus Reviews
