520    "At the height of the Great Depression, Sam Babb, the 
       charismatic basketball coach of tiny Oklahoma Presbyterian
       College, began dreaming. Like so many others, he wanted a 
       reason to have hope. Traveling from farm to farm, he 
       recruited talented, hardworking young women and offered 
       them a chance at a better life: a free college education 
       if they would come play for his basketball team, the 
       Cardinals. Despite their fears of leaving home and the 
       sacrifices faced by their families, the women followed 
       Babb and his dream. He shaped the Cardinals into a 
       formidable team, and something extraordinary began to 
       happen: with passion for the game and heartfelt loyalty to
       one another and their coach, they won every game. 
       Combining exhilarating sports writing and exceptional 
       storytelling, Dust Bowl Girls conveys the intensity of an 
       improbable journey to an epic showdown with the prevailing
       national champions, helmed by the legendary Babe 
       Didrikson. And it captures a moment in American sports 
       history when a visionary coach helped his young athletes 
       achieve more than a winning season"--|cProvided by
