Small Puddles is about rowing, rites of passage, persistence, and trying to find your way.
Michael “Zig” Danziger projects a certain devil-may-care persona. But don’t let the larger-than-life, hail-fellow-well-met routine fool you – there is far more to his story than being born on third base. Zig’s intense experience as a Yale oarsman is a case study on the journey itself being the reward. He was never going to make the first varsity boat, or the second. Not even the third boat. But he worked his ass off to earn a seat in the fourth boat – and became a Yale Crew legend. Small Puddles tells the story of those years at Yale and the people who shaped Zig’s one-of-a-kind view of the world.
