The third volume in this beautifully illustrated anthology features traditional tales of heroic women from China to Canada and beyond.

Long before Suzanne Collins created Katniss Everdeen and Octavia Butler wrote Parable of the Sower, there were many traditional folktales full of adventure, intrigue, and intrepid female characters. Feminist Folktales from Around the World collects these forgotten classics and presents them with original artwork by designer and illustrator Suki Boynton.

Volume three in the series, Sea Girl features an introduction by Daniel Jose Older, the New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Saints. In legends from China, Finland, India, Canada, and more, brave heroines encounter monstrous rivers and ogres' nests while outsmarting desperate sharks and hungry tigers. They courageously save families and villages—and, most importantly, they always choose their own fate.
