The Three-Year Swim Club by Julie Checkoway

This is the incredible story that begins in 1937 of a dreamer, a school teacher–turned-swim-coach in Maui and his team of impoverished “ditch kids,” the children of Japanese-American sugar plantation workers who trained in irrigation ditches and dared to dream of Olympic gold, despite the obstacles of war and discrimination. Thoroughly researched and fully fleshed out, The Three-Year Swim Club brings these swimmers to life in a most inspired way, elucidating a fascinating time in U.S. history and the human will to become its heroes.  —Melinda

I was totally fascinated by this visual travelogue which shows that—no matter the diversity of landscapes, people, and resources—the exhilaration of skateboarding is universal.  —S.B.
