The Boys in the Boat is the most popular and widely read book ever written about the sport of rowing. The rowing world owes a great debt to its author, Daniel James Brown, for his role in increasing widespread understanding of and appreciation for a sport that still remains imperfectly understood and inadequately appreciated.

But our interest in Daniel James Brown should not be limited to his association with The Boys. It turns out that the life of the man behind the message is a fascinating tale in its own right. For some captivating insights into the story behind this author, an interview that he gave to PBS Hawaii can be accessed in the following link here.
