Another Great Summer Giveaway = Wonder Girl

Just Published Yesterday!

Wonder Girl
The Magnificent Sporting Life of
Babe Didrikson Zacharias

Here's the publisher's blurb:

A story of women in sports, particularly women in golf, and also the history of Cancer awareness. Babe Didrikson Zaharias overcame vicious criticism and rocked the status quo to pursue her dreams and objectives.

WONDER GIRL by Don Van Natta, Jr. is the extraordinary story of a nearly forgotten American superstar athlete. Texas girl Babe Didrikson never tried a sport too tough and never met a hurdle too high. Despite attempts to keep women from competing, Babe achieved All-American status in basketball and won gold medals in track and field at the 1932 Olympics.

Then Babe attempted to conquer golf.  One of the founders of the LPGA, Babe won more consecutive tournaments than any golfer in history. At the height of her fame, she was diagnosed with cancer. She would then take her most daring step of all by going public and trying to win again with the hope of inspiring the world. A rollicking saga, stretching across the first half of the 20th century, WONDER GIRL is as fresh, heartfelt, and graceful as Babe herself.

Now the best news of all - the publisher, Little Brown and Company has made two copies available for a giveaway.  I haven't gotten my review copy yet, but I'll be just as anxious as you all to read this one.  To enter  to win one of these copies just fill out the form below.  Standard rules:
