It took more than competitive drive for the women who first ran in the Olympics, beginning in 1928. It especially took endurance to withstand the misogynist complaints about their presence. Roseanne Montillo details the lives of Betty Robinson, Babe Didrikson, Stella Walsh, and others; Kathleen McInerney narrates with a steady emotional tone. It's her inflections that carry the audiobook rather than impersonations, which is appropriate. The achievements of these pioneers--some of whom remain footnotes in history--are treated with respect, which McInerney delivers through her narration.
