Describes the life and accomplishments of Gertrude Ederle, the first woman to swim the English Channel and a figure in the early women's rights movement.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
Trudy Ederle didn't learn to swim until she was seven. But once she hit the water, there was no stopping her. She loved to swim, she was talented, and she was determined to be the best. At the age of seventeen, Trudy won three medals at the 1924 Olympics in Paris. By the time she turned nineteen, Trudy had set twenty-nine U.S. and world records.

Publisher Description:
Trudy Ederle loved to swim. And she was determined to be the best. At seventeen Trudy won three medals at the 1924 Olympics, in Paris. By the time she turned nineteen, Trudy had set twenty-nine U.S. and world records. But what she planned to do next had never been done-by a woman. She would tackle the most difficult swim of all time: the twenty-one miles of cold, choppy water that separate England from France. Trudy's historic fourteen-hour swim across the English Channel set a world record. She defied those who said it couldn't be done. And with her courage and endurance, Trudy Ederle became a symbol for women everywhere.
