Fire on the Track by Roseanne Montillo

In 1928, women were permitted to participate at the Olympics in track and field for the first time. This book recounts the careers of the women who were there and those who followed in their footsteps. These women overcame immense physical, mental, and social obstacles to pursue a sport they loved. It’s a fascinating and rarely told part of history. - Jade
