Allred, a former member of the U.S. women's bobsled team, can add "professional football player" to her resume as defensive end on the Austin Rage of the Women's Professional Football League. She relates her experiences in football and also draws anecdotes and examples from women in boxing, stuntwomen in film, and members of the U.S. women's bobsled team, which won the 2002 Olympic gold medal. These are inspiring stories of women who have persisted despite opposition and have fun playing sports. (Library Journal Review)
