Splash! Ethelda Bleibtrey Makes Waves of Change

Ethelda Bleibtrey was a girl with guts who loved the water. As a child with polio in the early 1900s, swimming set her free. The water released her from her pain and helped her build strong muscle — and a powerful spirit. From then on, from the New York beaches to the choppy waters of the 1920 Olympics to the Central Park Reservoir, Ethelda made a splash wherever she went.

For Ethelda, doing the right thing sometimes came with a price — change often does — but Ethelda helped make the world better than how she found it. Splash! This picture book celebrates Bleibtrey's many contributions, from changing attitudes towards women's swimming costumes after getting arrested for "nude swimming" when she took her stockings off, to winning three Olympic gold medals and setting multiple world records.
