From School Library Journal:

Grade 4 Up An appealing anthology of folk tales for those who are tired of the endless stream of meek, passive and gentle heroines who inhabit many folk tales. Assembled from all parts of the world, these 13 tales feature women who are intelligent, clever, strong and/or brave. The stories are written in a flowing narrative style ideally suited for storytelling or reading aloud. The engravings which accompany each tale are realistic, intricately detailed and perfect for the tales. This collection is a welcome addition to the existing body of similar collections, of which Phelps' Tatterhood and Other Tales (Feminist Pr, 1978), and The Maid of the North (Holt, 1981) and Lurie's Clever Gretchen & Other Forgotten Folktale Heroines (Crowell, 1980) are the best known. The lack of complete sources for the folk tales is the only fault in this much-needed collection. Denise A. Anton, Corn Belt Library System, Normal, Ill.

Store Description

Rare Reads formerly operated a storefront in The Lakewood Antiques Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia but reverted to a strictly online operation when the Gallery closed. In 2006, Rare Reads published "The Heeey Baby Days of Beach Music" which received a bronze medal from The Independent Publishers Association. Long sold out, copies of the 13 pound tribute to the musicians who created the unique R&B genre are occasionally available on ABE. The book was a collaborative effort of Rare Reads and many others including the musicians that created the sound Southerns term "Beach Music." Rare Reads is considering future publications in addition to expanding its online enterprise. Rare Reads is operated by Greg Haynes and son Reid Haynes and has warehouses in Atlanta and Athens, Georgia.
