Publisher Description:
Exerting all the primal pull of great storytelling, these haunting and lyrical tales activate ancient memories buried deep within our collective unconscious. From the sea goddess Fand to Cerridwen who can change her shape at will to the great warrior Queen Creidne, the women of Celtic literature are here celebrated for their ingenuity, spirit, physical courage, and deep instinctual nature. Featuring startling transformations and sweet revenge, bawdy humor and melancholy lyricism, the tales gathered in this collection celebrate primal female experience and the deep reverence the Celts had for all natural phenomenon.
• Celtic myth, Celtic spirituality, and Celtic history are all extremely popular now.
• This is the only book available which focuses on the women of Celtic myth and legend.
• Published in March, in time for St. Patrick's Day promotions.
• Powerful female archetypes will appeal to audience for Clarissa Pinkola Estes' "Women Who Run With the Wolves."
