One of the world’s most popular outdoor fitness activities, rowing is also a sport with a romantic and alluring history. Experienced rower and journalist David Churbuck takes the reader through a colorful history from rowing's beginnings as a team sport on England's Thames to its pinnacle at the Olympic games.

Nineteen chapters cover such topics as women in rowing, training, international competition, the history of the famous rowing clubs, and how to row, both recreationally and competitively. With a bibliography; a list of rowing teams and organizations; a glossary of terms; a list of races and regattas; an equipment source guide; and more than 60 black-and-white photographs and drawings, this attractive large-format book is perfect for the experienced rower and will also inspire anyone interested in exploring the sport of rowing.
