Description


From Japan to Norway, Scotland to Sudan, Tatterhood brings readers twelve folk tales--and twelve women whose cunning, hard work, and physical strength are celebrated in each story. A family of three women teaches a burly man how to wrestle, a girl battles a fearsome bear, and a young mother rescues her village from an elephant's stomach.
