Pub. Date:
Strong women who prevail and triumph using their intelligence, courage, or resourcefulness are celebrated in this gathering of stories for all ages. It features legends, folklore, and fairy tales from such far-flung places as the Punjab, Africa, China, Japan, the Middle East, and Europe and from places close at hand-Hawaii, New England, and the Ozarks. Some of the tales are reprinted from their original telling, others are completely retold. All are excellent for read-alouds, story time, or reading programs. Also of interest to students of literature, storytelling, or women's studies.
