In this book discover the life of Evonne Goolagong, the inspiring indigenous Australian tennis player.
Evonne grew up on a hot, dusty farm in Australia. She was the third of eight children, and a descendant of the Wirundjuri people, who have lived on the land for more than 60,000 years. Her talent for tennis was discovered at a local tennis club, and before she knew it, the girl dreaming about the place called 'Wimbledon' was playing on the center court. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the brilliant tennis player's life.Written by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara, Illustrated by Lisa Koesterke
