5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful True Story of Female Athletes Making History
This book is great read.I am a rower and former coach but this book is written for rowers and non-rowers alike to enjoy.The author pulls you into another time when femle rowers (as many other female athletes of the time) were fighting to compete at an elite, international level in a male-dominated sport. The true story is told as a part of both college athletics' and Olympic history. The challenges both on and off of the water that these women and their coaches faced are shared so clearly that you feel you are actually watching it unfold. While I knew a lot about many of the key players from other books, and rowing connections, I learned even more about these inspiring individuals that laid the foundation for so many rowers and athletes to train and compete at the highest levels since.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent women rowing story
Very inspiring tale of women of various ages battling male chauvinism and their own physical abilities in rowing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Women, guts, glory, and a story
I am the proud parent of a stroke rower. This story, of very different women, from widely geographic and psychological backgrounds, all coming together to do something no one had done before, is mesmorizing and grabs at every heartstring I have.The forward is equally compelling.I have met one of the Yale rowers in this story, and believe me, if she did half the stuff she is credited doing, I have even more admiration for her.This book taught me a bit about rowing, some equipment nuances, and training techniques.It gave me several nights of wonderful pleasure, some laughs, some tears.Now that this sport, like most others, is so scientific, so over studied (I guess we have the east germans to thank for that), it largely selects the athletes by performance.But the 'Red Rose Crew' had that intangible:spirit and guts. That doesn't always show up on ERG scores, or height charts.I am so glad I read this, and was able to share it with my daughter. The writing is clear, concise, and both narrative and dialogue where appropriate.Great work.

4-0 out of 5 stars An inspirational, albeit brief, history of women's rowing
I purchased the Red Rose Crew both as a rowing coach and coxswain. I had heard of the book before but never read it. While it was a relatively quick read, it did provide some good insight into how women's rowing has evolved since the 1970s. It gave some wonderful descriptions of the various struggles the women went through, as well as the individuals who helped them along their way.

It would be really nice to see a sequel, or something similar, that documents what women's rowing has become in the past twenty or so years. There is a decent follow-up of the individuals from the team at the end of the book, but I feel like I could have easily stomached another 100+ pages of what has happened since then.

All in all, a good read and a good book to have if you know anything about rowing, and specifically women's rowing at the collegiate level and beyond.

5-0 out of 5 stars So much more than just a rowing story .....
If you love rowing, if you love sports, if you're interested in historical moments .... this book is wonderful.I have read it and re-read it.I have lent it and gifted it.This is the true story of several remarkable women athletes.It is extremely well written and takes you through the story with grace and passion.I think I'll go read it again! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars To a newcomer, this seemed complete and was a great help!
I'm very disappointed that it's out-of-print, as I got the copy I usedfrom the library, and liked it enough to buy it, or to try to! I'm astark newcomer, not even a friend in the hobby.This book was a great helpto me in getting me started and pointing out so many things that I neverconsidered.I like it! Phil Brown, Zionsville, Indiana

2-0 out of 5 stars This book is rather disappointing.
There aren't a lot of rowing books out there, so this one was eagerly awaited.I wish I could say the wait was worth it, but it really wasn't.There is not much here of interest to a rower with any experience at all; Steve Redgrave's similar book, "The Complete Book Of Rowing," is much more interesting and useful.
