Editorial Reviews

This book can be read by children nine and up, but will also be enjoyed by adult fans of sports, history, and biography.


Dublin's laudatory text and many photographs will also help to keep the memory of this exceptional athlete alive.


This reads as much as a social history of Ontario as biography, with Rosenfeld—woman, Jew and athlete—as a rallying point.
