For Daniel James Brown it was important to stay true to the actual events but it was just as important to make it influential and thoughtful to the reader. These flashbacks also made it possible to tie in the reality of how the novel was written, through the eyes of Joe Rantz as an old man who died part of the way through the creation of The Boys in the Boat.

For instance, page 135 quotes "I didn 't want you to think of him that way, honey.
David it is also the same concept in that his main goal is to be faithful to God; to follow everything the all mighty and all powerful has planned for you. So in the end of it all when your days come to an end you will be allowed into the kingdom of God. Another point in David’s culture that is also similar to Rama’s is the kind of marital statues a man could have. “…Although women could not have more than one husband simultaneously (polyandry), men might have more than one wife at the same time”.
