Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0996585702, Paperback)

Finding a Way to Play is full of stories about women who have gone to great lengths to play the game of basketball. In this book, you will read about: Early pioneers who played despite concerns about risks to health and femininity, Black and Native American women who endured racial discrimination as they searched for opportunities to play, lesbians who hid their identities for fear of being denied the chance to play or coach, and women over 50 who ignored aches and pains to rediscover the joys of a childhood passion. Readers will come away with an understanding of the roads women have traveled to bring the game into the future. Those who grew up before Title IX may find themselves or loved ones in the stories of women who kept the earlier flame alive.
