Summary
"In a series of thirteen original narratives, each on a particular sport and focusing on the top female athletes who were the foremost figures in their arena, Nike Is a Goddess captures the profound changes women's sports have undergone and pays tribute to the remarkable athletes who led the way." "Written by top female sportswriters from such prestigious publications as The Miami Herald, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Women's Sports & Fitness, and Sports Illustrated, Nike Is a Goddess is an inspiring and significant commemoration of a chapter in American history that has never before been written."--Jacket
