Review “Helen Stephens’s story touches so many of the big moments and emerging issues of American sports in the 1930s and 40s. Her life was rich with adventure, controversy, and accomplishment.  More people should be familiar with The Fulton Flash. And now, thanks to Sharon Kinney Hanson’s carefully researched biography—they will be.”—Bob Costas

“Olympic gold medalist of the 1930s, multisport athlete, brash, cocky, and controversial—sound like Babe Didrikson? Missouri farm girl Helen Stephens shares some characteristics with her idol, but she never matched Babe's fame. Authorized biographer Hanson, a local Missouri freelance writer, interviewed Stephens before her death in 1994 and accessed her huge memorabilia collection. . . . Hanson has served ‘her story’ well.”—Library Journal
