    “Women Who Run with the Wolves isn’t just another book. It is a gift of profound insight, wisdom, and love.
    An oracle from one who knows.”—Alice Walker

    “I am grateful to Women Who Run with the Wolves and to Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés. The work shows the reader how
    glorious it is to be daring, to be caring, and to be women. Everyone who can read should read this book.”—Maya Angelou

    “An inspiring book, the ‘vitamins for the soul’ [for] women who are cut off from their intuitive nature.”—San Francisco
    Chronicle

    “Stands out from the pack . . . a joy and sparkle in [the] prose . . . This book will become a bible for women
    interested in doing deep work. . . . It is a road map of all the pitfalls, those familiar and those horrifically
    unexpected, that a woman encounters on the way back to her instinctual self. Wolves . . . is a gift.”—Los Angeles Times

    “A mesmerizing voice . . . dramatic storytelling she learned at the knees of her [immigrant] aunts.”—Newsweek

    “The work of Clarissa Pinkola Estés, rooted in old and deep family rites and in archetypal psychology, recognizes that
    the soul is not lost, but has been put to sleep. This volume reminds us that we are nature for all our sophistication,
    that we are still wild, and the recovery of that vitality will itself set us right in the world.”—Thomas Moore, author
    of Care of the Soul

    UPDATED, WITH NEW MATERIAL BY THE AUTHOR"WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES isn't just another book. It is a
    gift of profound insight, wisdom, and love. An oracle from one who knows."--Alice WalkerWithin every woman there lives a
    powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who
    represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species. In WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES, Dr.
    Estes unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, and stories, many from her own family, in order to help women
    reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and
    commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman and hold her against our
    deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine. Dr. Estes has created a new lexicon for describing the female
    psyche. Fertile and life-giving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul."This volume
    reminds us that we are nature for all our sophistication, that we are still wild, and the recovery of that vitality will
    itself set us right in the world."--Thomas Moore Author of Care of the Soul"I am grateful to WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE

    From the Back Cover
    -------------------

    Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts,
    passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. Her name is Wild Woman, but she is an endangered species. Though the gifts
    of wildish nature come to us at birth, society's attempt to "civilize" us into rigid roles has plundered this treasure,
    and muffled the deep, life-giving messages of our own souls. Without Wild Woman, we become over-domesticated, fearful,
    uncreative, trapped. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D., Jungian analyst and cantadora storyteller, shows how woman's
    vitality can be restored through what she calls "psychic archeological digs" into the bins of the female unconscious. In
    Women Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Estes uses multicultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, and stories chosen from over
    twenty years of research that help women reconnect with the healthy, instinctual, visionary attributes of the Wild Woman
    archetype. Dr. Estes collects the bones of many stories, looking for the archetypal motifs that set a woman's inner life
    into motion. "La Loba" teaches about the transformative function of the psyche. In "Bluebeard", we learn what to do with
    wounds that will not heal; in "Skeleton Woman", we glimpse the mystical power of relationship and how dead feelings can
    be revived; "Vasalisa the Wise" brings our lost womanly instincts to the surface again; "The Handless Maiden" recovers
    the Wild Woman initiation rites; and "The Little Match Girl" warns against the insidious dangers of a life spent in
    fantasy. In these and other stories, we focus on the many qualities of Wild Woman. We retrieve, examine, love, and
    understand her, and hold her against our deep psyches as one whois both magic and medicine. In Women Who Run with the
    Wolves, Dr. Estes has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and lifegiving, it is a psychology
    of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul.
