Finished Reading: Fire on the Track by Roseanne Montillo

In case you didn't know it, I love (LOVE) nonfiction. I find reality so interesting and not to mention women's fight for equality primarily during the early years of the 20th Century. Fire on the Track recalls the story of Elizabeth 'Betty' Robinson, the first woman to win a gold metal in the Women's Track [...]
