Riding For My Life|
(racing) Julie Krone was the first female jockey to win a triple crown race.
The book covers Krone's childhood in Eau Clare, MI, and finishes with her return to the track after a very serious 1993 accident. In addition to being an account of her life, it also includes some of young Julie's writings from school - where it is clear that despite the grammar and spelling mistakes, a very bright young mind shines through. There is plenty of self-criticism in here as well.
The book, co-written with Nancy Ann Richardson, is engaging and very readable.
