This unusual graphic novel tells the tales of women who dared to defy convention and do things that were forbidden for women to do--while disguised as men! The bold, black and white illustrations and distinctive style bring to life these fascinating stories. Read about a female pharoah, a woman who commanded a Viking raiding ship, a soldier, and more. These women showed bravery equal to or more than that of your typical hero. They risked all to be free, to love who they wanted, for power and for adventure, and their legendary tales make for an amazing read.
