This chapter explores the narrative languages that the athlete Babe Didrikson Zaharias used to define her life. She used folklore to promote her athletic career in numerous sports in 1928, and she continued to use it until her death in 1956. It notes that Babe’s use of folklore and mythology to define her life has given her legacy a lasting appeal, as her friends, family, and biographers, all have somewhat differing accounts of how Babe Didrikson Zaharias lived her life.
