Folktales of Strong Women

by Doug Lipman

"Riveting. All the grand ideas - including love, mystery, and the persistence of the immortal - are in these stories, and all are vividly told." --Boston Globe


"Each story entertainingly demonstrates how a woman relying on her own resourcefulness takes control of her life... On cold winter nights, little girls [nowadays] will have a lot more to choose from." --Boston Phoenix

"Are you tired of the traditional passive (or evil) female folktale characters? Doug Lipman has unearthed and reassembled 5 tales of women - but none of them are the hand-wringing variety. The heroines take command of their lives in entertaining and engaging ways." --Learn Out Loud

Contents

The Chicken Woman (Israel)
A plucky poultry dealer saves the Jews of an entire country.

"Children and adults will glean something new each time they listen.... The stories carry such an emotional and intellectual impact, that I found myself needing a quiet period following each to reflect on what I had just heard." —National Storytelling Journal
