Details

A waitress barely scraping by on Depression-era tips, she wanted more, and she saw her chance when she witnessed her first wrestling match. Even against all odds, she knew that she could become a female wrestler.

What followed was a gritty, glittering testament to the golden age of wrestling, when beauty and brawn captivated the world.

'The gripping history of a largely forgotten legend of wrestling ... Lean, harsh and lowdown, this bruising history leaves a mark.' -Kirkus Reviews
