Reviews

Anthologist Kathleen Ragan has, with the publication of this book, become an important figure in the restoration of the feminine aspect of the hero. She gives us the broadest selection of female hero stories that has ever been published.--Jane Yolen, from the foreword
[A] spell-binding anthology...shimmering, spine-tingling tales in which females of every shape, age, and size valiantly and selflessly save the day.
It is the magic of these stories that came as a revelation to me...I hope this book becomes a classic.--Susan Griffin
The stories are gems...delightfully fresh folktales from six continents whose lively plots will enspirit both parents and teachers.--Ruth P. Bottigheimer, author of Grimm's Bad Girls and Bold Boys
As edifying as it is entertaining.
