Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype
By Clarissa Pinkola Estés
Why this book?
Women Who Run with the Wolves is a classic; I can’t recommend it enough to anyone interested in the fascinating interplay between myth and fairytale, the female psyche, and the journey of self-discovery—in the literal and psychological woods. This book has led me to think much more deeply about the female archetypes present in both my solo travels and in my personal development (of course, the two are deeply interconnected). I am currently on my second reading of this epic book, and the tales shared and their profound interpretations continue to twine with my life in wild and unexpected ways. Required reading for any aspiring or veteran wild woman!
