Drawing from traditional tales and sacred texts worldwide, Burleigh Muten presents eight goddesses who each face their own set of unique challenges. Whether it be the mighty Isis, who struggles to save her beloved brother amidst the power politics of ancient Egypt, or White Buffalo Woman, who instructs the Sioux tribe how to worship Mother Earth, all of the women brim with determination as they strive to assert their own independence and authority.
