Detailed Product Description
New York, Seaview, 1980, 1st edition. 213 pp, photos. Hardcover with chipped dust jacket. Near Fine condition. 

Andrea Mead Lawrence (April 19, 1932 March 30, 2009) was an American alpine ski racer. She competed in three Winter Olympics (and two world championships) and was the first American alpine skier to win two Olympic gold medals. She was one of the first American female Olympics heroes. 

At the 1952 Winter Olympics in Oslo, Norway, she was selected as captain of the U.S. women's team at age 19. She won both the slalom and the giant slalom events. She succeeded Gretchen Fraser, who had won gold in the slalom in 1948, as the top American woman ski racer.

She also competed at the 1956 Winter Olympics, placing fourth in the giant slalom. Between the 1952 and 1956 Olympics, she gave birth to three children, and was inducted into the National Ski Hall of Fame in 1958 and carried the torch at the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley, California, passed it to America gold medalist speed skater Ken Henry, who circled the ice rink then ascended the Tribune of Honor and ignited the Olympic flame.
