Summary For many young women, the fairy-tales they know are the ones that have been retold by Walt Disney. Once upon a time, these stories of magical transformation were meant for young women as they grew towards adulthood, told by their mothers and grandmothers, and the wise women of the clan as they spun and wove and stirred their pots. The heroines of these old tales set out on a difficult road of trials to discover their true destiny. And, contrary to popular opinion, marrying a prince was not the only goal. These ancient tales of wonder and adventure are about learning to be strong, brave, kind and true-hearted, and trusting in yourself to change the world for the better, transforming the way you think about fairy tales.
