Publisher's Summary

Charged with drama and beauty, this memorable collection by a master storyteller weaves a magical world of possibility and power from female myths of physical renewal, creation and change. It is an extraordinary immersion into the bodies and voices, mindscapes and landscapes, of the shapeshifting women of our native folklore.  

Drawing on myth and fairy tales found across Europe from Croatia to Sweden, Ireland to Russia, Sharon Blackie brings to life women's remarkable ability to transform themselves in the face of seemingly impossible circumstances. These stories are about coming to terms with our animal natures, exploring the ways in which we might renegotiate our fractured relationship with the natural world and uncovering the wildness and wilderness within.

Step into the Otherworld and enjoy

The only thing missing from these stories was the fire in which we all set around and hear a retelling of lost stories. I lost count of the times I laughed out loud, especially meeting Babs. I will listen to this over and over for years to come and pray one day I get to become the Callioch myself.

Absolute storytelling magic that does honor to the cultures they come from.

The reimagining of these stories shows the diversity and skill aid Sharon Blackie’s narrative voice. These are stories that are meant to be told orally and the delivery by the narrators is magic. You feel as if you are gathered by a fire listening or being told by a friend of their experience. I felt overwhelmed to tears with the sheer beauty of the storytelling and delivery of all of these stories.

Just what I needed!

Great stories Wonderfully performed! The characters all had their own voice and accent. I warmed to the stories a little more with each one.
