The first comprehensive historical look at New Zealand rowing, this beautiful book will be a significant record of one of our most popular and successful Olympic sports. From the unprecedented success of the men's eight at Munich, through to the high drama of Beijing, where the Evers-Swindell pair triumphed by the narrowest of margins and Mahe Drysdale displayed immense courage under daunting conditions, Peter Bidwell paints an evocative and authoraitative picture of the events, personalities, athletes coaches and administrators who have taken rowing on a roller coaster ride of success and failure over the past fifty years. In an unprecedented look at the many controversies and controversial personalities who have left their marks on a national sport that has contributed more than its share of award winners at the Annual Halberg Sports Awards, this book will appeal to the practitioner and the armchair alike. Superbly illustrated and presented in a stunning hardback format, this will be a prestigious addition to any sports library and a must for every rowing fan. Timed for release to coincide with the October World Rowing Championships at Lake Karapiro, this will be the stand out sports book for Christmas 2010.
