(From the publisher):
Once upon a time Amazons lived on the Black Sea coast...Imagine then a mountain cave in Thrace, thirty-five years after Troy's last ember has grown cold. Two old women, an Amazon and a Trojan slave, fuel the hearthfire with their stories. One speaks, one sings, and the winter air is peopled with women. A child stands at the cave wall drawing in charcoal...or sits by the fire with a clay tablet and a kingfisher's wing feather.
Author Ellen Frye begins with the premise: What if the Amazons told their own stories? The result is a collection of familiar Greek myths told from an Amazon perspective.
