Narrator Virginia Wolf's modulated performance lets this exciting sports story almost tell itself. Her approach works since there's action aplenty in this audiobook. Set in the depths of the Depression, the story involves a remarkable and little heralded sports feat. In the early 1930s, coach Sam Babb's Cardinals, from tiny Oklahoma Presbyterian College, twice won the AAU basketball championship. Wolf's understated style seems fitting for this dramatic true tale of braving the hardships of the era. The story is also a kind of social history of women's sports. This audiobook puts the listener virtually in the players' sneakers as these talented farm girls will their way to victory. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
