Publisher Comments:

These 25 traditional tales come from Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas. All the central characters are spirited females — decisive heroes of extraordinary courage, wit, and achievement who set out to determine their own fate. Some of their stories are comic, some adventurous, some eerie, and some magical.
