Note: 
A dry, highly detailed account of the Canadian women's track and field team that starred in the 1928 Olympics. Readers have been introduced to their exploits in Anne Dublin's Bobbie Rosenfeld: the Olympian Who Could Do Everything. Here, Bobbie gets equal billing with Jane Bell, Myrtle Cook, Ethel Smith, Ethel Catherwood, and Jean Thompson. Each of these women was a star in one or more track and field events, setting records and winning medals. Their individual stories of motivation, training, determination, disappointment, and success are set within the larger struggle of women to be accepted in sports.
