From the sea goddess Fand to Cerridwen who can change her shape at will to the great warrior Queen Creidne, the women of Celtic literature are here celebrated for their ingenuity, spirit, physical courage, and deep instinctual nature. Featuring startling transformations and sweet revenge, bawdy humor and melancholy lyricism, the tales gathered in this collection celebrate primal female experience and the deep reverence the Celts had for all natural phenomenon.
