Fearless Girls, Wise Women, and Beloved Sisters, edited by Kathleen Ragan
This book has tales from all over the world about women heroines in all sorts of different settings. Sometimes its just quiet heroism in the house, or sometimes its the more typical quest kind of deal, but all the women in this book do something to save themselves, their family, or their town. Most of the stories were pretty interesting, coming from a wide range of places. There were Native American myths, European folktales, and African and Asian folktales. 3 1/2 stars.
