In this riveting autobiography, jockey Bev Buckingham tells her story of triumph and tragedy on and off the racetrack. Buckingham had conquered the entrenched sexism of the horse racing industry to become her state's leading rider and the first woman in the world to win a jockey's premiership. When a dramatic fall left her with a broken back, she was told she would never walk again. This is a remarkable story of recovery from both a broken back and a broken heart.
