"In Girl Country, Jacqueline Vogtman tells stories of
hope and connection in the face of terrifying forces. The stories range in time from the Middle
Ages, to our present day, to a dystopian future that is uncannily
recognizable. Her characters encounter
threats from environmental collapse, economic divide, and social structures
that repress and contain women. Yet the
stories find illumination in the darkness as the characters bend toward empathy
and connection. Read Girl Country, and you'll see the world with a newly
refreshed vision."

--Lawrence Coates, author of Camp Olvido
