Every woman should read this book. After reading I bought 5 copies and gave to each of my closest friends. When my daughter is old enough I will give her a copy too

Clarissa Pinkola Estes beautifully communicates traditional Native stories of the Wild Woman and analyses with the reader the psyche, and how understanding our own inner psyche how we as women (and men) can move out of victim-hood into the Wild being that we should be: strong, daring and Wild. The stories are demonstrated throughout the book and provide easy instant recognition, understanding and self development. Probably the best book I have ever picked up (and can't put down). As an educated woman who had lost her inner creativity (also discussed in the book as to how this happened and how to reclaim our creative selves), the only thing I can say that could be addressed (although it wouldn't make reading it so enjoyable) is that there are many words that even I do not recognise and I would imagine could be difficult for readers that find reading challenging. Clarissa Pinkola Estes however, is a very gifted writer and regardless of this, I would not wish to change the book as it flows in a way that most readers could understand even without a dictionary. I have so much praise for this book and I have purchased several for my female tribe so they can gain wisdom into their own Wild Women psyche.

I felt like I was reading a really long advert for French perfume at first and I was getting a bit annoyed: "SHE IS IN THE WIND, SHE IS IN THE RIPPLES OF THE STREAM" etc etc, but then I read the first tale and BAM - I got it! FABULOUS

I rather agree with Maya Angelou: 'Everyone who can read should read this book'. Thought-provoking, profound. I think it is a book I will return to many times. Definitely NOT one to give away - only to lend.

I was intrigued by the write-up of this book, so thought I would give it a try. The copy I received is in great condition, no pages turned down (so far) and there is no underlining (so far). As you might have guessed, I have not read the whole book yet, just the first three stories, but had a quick flick through the whole book when I unpacked it. I am enjoying reading these stories, as they are different to the usual 'female' books/stories, as they are all strong women. If you like myths and grown-up fairy stories, give this one a try, I am sure you will find it well worth it.

I would like to give 10 stars for this book...simply it changes your life and gives you the deepest internal peace. Tried Pinkola Estes's audio books too and they are amazing. More than happy.

One of my favourite books for women of all ages. If you are interested in, or believe in the power of the inner spirit.

If a wise grandmother became a book this would be it.
