Review:

Amazons, gladiators, martial nuns, maenads, warrior queens, pirates, guerrillas, furies, and avenging goddesses -- the fighting women who populate the pages of this fabulous encyclopedia marched boldly through the ages armed with swords, axes, bows, and most importantly, their uniquely feminine fortitude.

Here is the first work to gather and detail these tales of womanly valor and derring-do. Drawing from a cross-cultural perspective, the book ranges through mythology, religion, history, and literature, from ancient to modern times. Contains more than 1,000 entries!

From the Publisher:

A unique and comprehensive encyclopedia of more than 1,000 valiant female combatants who have appeared in history, mythology, and literature from the dawn of history to the present day.

"An excellent piece of scholarly detective work...offers information not found in other reference sources"--Library Journal.
