Description

"Babe Didrikson Zaharias is perhaps the most accomplished athlete that young people have never heard of....Though not a purposeful feminist, she redefined how female athletes were supposed to look and act. Her life story as drawn from contemporary news articles and interviews is fascinating and inspirational, and it is punctuated with photographs like Zaharias shooting targets with Amelia Earhart and giving Sam Snead tips on his golf swing. This is part sports journalism, part narrative nonfiction, and part proof that professional athletes can be exemplary role models for young people." -- Erin Anderson, Booklist
