Many sportswriters and broadcasters in this country agree that Bobbie Rosenfeld may be Canada's all-around greatest athlete of the twentieth century. Her love for all sports showed itself early. As a young girl she excelled in track and field, ice hockey, tennis, basketball and softball. At the 1928 Summer Olympics, held in Amsterdam, she won both gold and silver medals. But Bobbie's popularity was due to more than her athletic brilliance or, later, her skills as a sportwriter with the Globe & Mail. She was loved as much as anything for her strength of character—her decency, honesty and sense of fair play. Rich with historical photographs and context, Bobbie Rosenfeld: The Olympian Who Could Do Everything will appeal to sports fans of all ages.
by: Carol-Anne Hoyte, Canadian Bookseller - September 1, 2004
"Rosenfeld, an exceptional individual who embodied humour, perseverance, and a sense of fairness and equality, achieved her accomplishments several decades ago. In chronicling Rosenfeldís life for todayís children, Dublin employs a tone and language which makes her story timeless. "
