Review
------

“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

From the Inside Flap
--------------------

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
