Description

A collection of Native American stories of girls becoming women. These are stories from a broad array of tribes and traditions.

From a young woman who marries the moon to a girl who befriends Thunder and harnesses his power, The Girl Who Married the Moon brings us an imaginative collection of stories celebrating the female rite of passage. Paying tribute to the most sacred and powerful force in Native culture, a woman's ability to create life, these tales depict young women as brave, self-reliant, and in control of their destinies. Originating in the oral tradition and entrusted to noted storytellers Joseph Bruchac and Cayle Ross, The Girl Who Married the Moon provides a fascinating insight into Native American culture and its female role models.
