Item Details

When Babe Didrikson Zaharias set herself a goal, she was bound to achieve it. From a very young age, she was determined to become the greatest woman athlete of the twentieth century. Through her world-record setting performances at the 1932 Olympic Games and her later dominance of professional golf, her never-take-no-for-an-answer attitude brought her an unprecedented mix of fame and scorn . This intimate and extensively researched biography chronicles her incredible triumphs against adversity, beginning on the childhood playgrounds of her rough Texas neighborhood and ending with her courageous final battle with cancer. The book also includes an author's note, a bibliography, source notes, and numerous archival images.
