Product description

Review

A rollicking, swashbuckling tale. -Los Angeles Times
"The frontier nun's rascally tale [is] a fascinating puzzle to decipher." -Angeline Goreau, The New York Times Book Review
"A mesmerizing adventure!" -Tama Janowitz
"[Catalina de Erauso] dared to steal the quest narrative from the roving men of her time and, miraculously, survived to tell the tale. An essential work for recovering the roots of women's autobiography and women's remaking of identity through encounters with otherness, not only in society but in the self." -Ruth Behar, author of The Vulnerable Observer
"The Steptos' translation, without betraying the original, turns this memoir into compelling literature in English." -Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria, Sterling Professor of Hispanic and Comparative Literatures, Yale University
