Fearless Girls, Wise Women, and Beloved Sisters: Heroines in Folktales from Around the World by Kathleen Ragan
Fearless Girls, Wise Women, and Beloved Sisters: Heroines in Folktales from Around the World

forestwhisperer, January 5, 2007

This collection is fantastic! Most of the stories are short--two to five pages, but each is unique and beautiful. Some stories are challenging for a Western reader to fully understand because they represent a very different cultural worldview. But it is just this aspect of the collection that most pleased me. It covers every continent fairly equitably. Some anthologies are heavy on European folktales because they are easier for Western writers to access. Kathleen Ragan does a good job making the book global. Many of the stories would be great to read to children, and quite enjoyable by adults as well.
