Amazons - fierce warrior women dwelling on the fringes of the known world - were the mythic archenemies of the ancient Greeks. In this deeply researched, wide-ranging, and lavishly illustrated book, Adrienne Mayor presents the Amazons as they have never been seen before. This is an account of warrior women in myth and history across the ancient world, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Great Wall of China.
