So She Did: The Story of May Wirth

At a time when girls weren’t encouraged to be bold and daring, Australian circus rider May Wirth lived by her own rules.

Instead of just looking pretty on a fancy circus pony, she longed to do thrilling stunts that would amaze crowds with her courage and skill . . . So she did.

Here is the story of a girl from humble beginnings who defied expectations and became the world’s bareback riding queen.

Written by Simi Genziuk, illustrated by Renée Treml and read by Nadine Garner
