Women Who Run with the Wolves

Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés' Women Who Run with the Wolves is uses myths and commentary to deconstruct the archetypal Wild Woman.

Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés

In Women Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, and stories, many from her own traditions, in order to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman, and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine.

Dr. Estés has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and life-giving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul. (From Random House Publishing Group
