Splash! : Ethelda Bleibtrey makes waves of change / Elisa Boxer ; Elizabeth Baddeley, illustrator.

Boxer, Elisa, (author.). Baddeley, Elizabeth, (illustrator.).


"As a child with polio in the early 1900s, swimming set Ethelda Bleibtrey free. The water released her from her pain and helped her build strong muscle--and a powerful spirit. From then on, from the New York beaches to the 1920 Olympics, Ethelda made a splash wherever she went"-- Provided by publisher.
