About the Author
Born in Sweden, Göran R. Buckhorn rowed at Malmö Roddklubb (MRK) as a teen and later became a novice and women's coach. A lifetime member of MRK, he was its president from 1990 to 1993. He worked as an editor for a Swedish publishing company for fourteen years, and co-founded the Swedish rowing magazine Svensk Rodd, for which he was coeditor. Since moving to the United States in 2000, Göran has worked in a few positions at Mystic Seaport Museum, including nine years as the editor of the museum's magazine. He has remained active in the rowing community, serving as one of the directors of Friends of Rowing History and as founder and editor of the rowing history website Hear The Boat Sing (HTBS). Göran is the author or editor of several books on the subject of rowing. He lives in Mystic, Connecticut.

"The Greatest Rowing Stories Ever Told comprises perhaps the most diverse and multifaceted rowing book I've ever encountered. Readers can dip in and out of this collection rather than read it in a linear fashion, and the best pieces can (and should) be re-read often. In this sense, this book makes an excellent and inspiring companion for long bus trips to regattas for collegiate and high school rowers, and it's also likely to spark thoughtful and even wistful memories for old-timers still paddling out on the water."--Michael J. Socolow, Hear The Boat Sing
