Kathrine Switzer changed the world of running. We follow young Kathrine from running laps in her backyard to becoming the first woman to run the Boston Marathon with official race numbers in 1967. The compelling collage art adds to the kinetic action of her triumph. Her story is inspirational for anyone eager to set things right. An excellent choice for girls and boys alike.
