Roller Derby Rivals

New York City, 1948. Midge "Toughie" Brasuhn is rough, scrappy, lightning-quick. Gerry Murray is a gutsy glamour girl — and Toughie's chief adversary. The skaters are fired up and ready to go as the cameras begin to roll! A legendary high-speed, hard-hitting rivalry on the Roller Derby track is about to be witnessed by a packed arena at the 69th Regiment Armory — and for the first time, thousands of television viewers.

Here is the story of two remarkable athletes at the dawn of televised sports. The book includes an Author's Note, a Roller Derby Time Line from 1935 to the present, and Sources and Resources, including photos of Gerry Murray and Toughie Brasuhn.
