KIRKUS REVIEW

Pulling together in brief biographies the stories of the women who broke the records in various sports, this should prove handy for reference and for recommendation to sports-minded girls. The accounts are short and included are stars from the time of Loretta Doty McCutcheon, who was born in 1888 and bowled her way to glory, down to Carol Heiss of recent figure skating fame. Alice Marble's tennis feats, Wanda Rudolph's running and the all-around Babe Didrikson Zaharias are each reported as well as skiers, swimmers and golfers who are less well known.
