Children's Literature - Dianne OchiltreeThis is a well-researched, hardcover book that addresses the need for more information about women sports professionals. A title in the "Female Sports Stars" series, the book starts at the very beginning, with the establishment of the Ladies Professional Golf Association in 1950, and continues to trace its evolution up to today's top international players. Mini-biographies of five of the greatest women golfers are also given: Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Nancy Lopez, Betsy King, Pat Bradley, and Patty Sheehan. The author, Barry Wilner, has been a sportswriter for the Associated Press for over twenty years. Illustrated with black and white photos throughout. Includes suggestions for further reading. A great reference book to have on hand when the LPGA turns 50 in the year 2000!
