For a time, it seemed that a great storehouse of women’s treasure had been forever lost; the stories of heroines who had awoken to the call to adventure, and faced down challenges, in order to bring the gifts born through their trials into the world. The Heroines Anthology tells tales from  before time began. Its stories travel alongside some of the forgotten women of history, and it imagines its heroines all the way into the unknown territory of the future.
