    One thought on “Wilma Rudolph: Olympic Runner”

    1. Read this after someone mentioned being perturbed at the book's discussion of Rudolph having a daughter before she was married. Found it handled touchingly and unflinchingly.You get what you get with a COFA book, but I thought this was readable and pretty well done. Worth reading if you don't know Rudolph's story--I didn't.

    2. It's a good biography book. I am reading this biography for my book report. Wilma Rudolph was a real inspiration to young female athletes!
