The Woman's Encyclopedia
of Myths and Secrets

Barbara Walker


Honored by the London Times Educational Supplement as 1986 "Book of the Year" this intriguing work stands in a class by itself among useful reference books. It brings together information of mythical figures in a most useful form indicating conflicting sources to demonstrate the universality of stories as bases of truths and morality in today's religions. Walker meticulously researched the material she describes, citing other authors' works from which she gleaned her wisdom. How often have you heard, or even used, the word hag? It is frequently used to describe an ugly woman, right? Let's look at the original documented meaning.

Quoted from: The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets by Barbara G. Walker, 1983
