This attractive, oversized photo-biography recounts her life story and sets it into the larger context of the evolving role of women's athletics, and the development of professional sports in the U.S....Befitting a champion, this superbly crafted, impeccably documented biography ranks head and shoulders above its peers." -- Luann Toth, School Library Journal
