An Olympic gold medal winner, Babe Didrikson was arguably the greatest athlete of the 20th century, excelling at every sport she tried: running, jumping, javelin throwing, swimming, basketball, golf, and baseball, to name just a few. Gifted and controversial, she took the country by storm from the '30s to the '50s. From sharecropper's daughter to sports superstar, Babe literally broke new ground, proclaiming herself "the greatest" long before Muhammad Ali. This lively biography will inspire young adult readers who identify with Babe's quest for the American Dream, efforts to compete in a male world, battle to overcome discrimination against women athletes, and struggle with personal identity.
