Summary
Sixty women athletes from 19 different sports from the late nineteenth century to 1991 are included in this source which highlights women's sporting experienced in America. A few of the women are not American, but fall into the category of "influencing" American sports. The work is in there sections. Part 1 is a history of women's sports; the second part contains the biographies, arranged alphabetically. Each entry is about 2 pages with a photograph, some with performances charted, and all with suggestions for further reading. The appendices list Olympic women medallists by sport, awards and championships, and arranges the athletes in the book by sport. Coverage overlaps but does not duplicate "Condon's Great Women Athletes." Recommended for middle and senior high schools
