This collection features ten women from Canada and around the world, amazing athletes who have gone the distance in their own way. The book profiles our own largely forgotten Olympian, Bobbie Rosenfeld, considered by many experts to be Canada's most accomplished female athlete of the first half of the twentieth century. Other remarkable women athletes include Annie Smith Peck, a trailblazing American mountain climber; the powerful wheelchair athlete Chantal Petitclerc; determined Chinese figure skater Chen Lu; and many other pioneers and champions. An inspiring book with an introduction, photographs and boxed and illustrative material.
