This book provides four folktales each from four different regions of the United States: northeast, southeast, southwest and northwest. The stories center around themes that celebrate womanhood, coming of age and the passage from girlhood to womanhood. These stories were delightful and entertaining. I believe any child, especially a girl, would enjoy these folktales and stories of strong and courageous women.

The short story format made these tales easy to read. They were action packed and filled with excitement. The narrator's voice sound like that of an old native storyteller. My favorite of the tales was Aarowhead Finger, a Penobscot story.
