More Than Rowing just happens to be about rowing at one particular American school, but the stories are universal. Rowing is no game. It is hard work, and ultimately you do it for yourself, but it hardly feels that way. You reach down and conjure up levels of commitment and effort you didn't know were within you, and you do it for your companions, your teammates, your mentors, your coaches, and your team. This two-volume hard cover all-color history covers 100 Kent School boys crews between 1922 and 2021 and 49 girls crews stretching from 1973 to 2021. Each year was populated with young athletes living, learning, and growing. If you ever rowed or if you ever admired a rower, this book was written for you.
The book is now only weeks away from release and is available for pre-order online through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. As was the case with The Sport of Rowing, the print run will be limited, and the books are sure to become collector's items. Ten years ago, TSOR sold out within days, and many missed out, so we encourage you to order now. The price is $150US.
This week I present the section on the 2010 Boys, Kent's most recent National Champion Crew.
