In this book you will read about: * Early pioneers who played despite concerns about risks to health and femininity * Black and Native American women who endured discrimination as they searched for opportunities to play * Lesbians who hid their identities for fear of being denied the chance to play * Older women who ignore aches and pains to renew the joys of a childhood passion. Readers will come away with an understanding of the roads women have traveled to bring the game into the future.
