About the Book

In this second volume of reissued classic folktales, a Punjabi woman outwits seven ruthless thieves, an Incan girl restores harmony to the empire, and a mischievous Norwegian lass thwarts her entitled landowner. Spanning several centuries and continents, the stories in Kamala recall how it's the dazzling courage, cleverness, and power of women that hold our world together.

Ethel Johnston Phelps (1914-1984) held a master's degree in Medieval Literature, co-edited a Ricardian journal, and published several articles on fifteenth-century subjects. She compiled two anthologies of feminist folk tales from around the world, Tatterhood and The Maid of the North.
