Drawing from her work as a psychoanalyst and cantadora (keeper of old stories), Dr. Estes uses myths and folktales to illustrate how societies systematically strip away the feminine spirit. Through an exploration into the nature of the wild woman archetype, Dr. Estes helps listeners rediscover and free their own wild nature.

If this was the entire book, I would have given it 5 stars.
This was my first time listening to an audio book, so I had no idea that this was not the entire book. I see now I have to look at the hours. Very disappointed. I thought I could listen to this on my commute. I had to go buy the book to finish it because it was selected for my book club. Not a happy camper at all. Well, what I did listen to, it was very good. Not so good reading it, though. I had to think too much while reading it and go back and forth rereading paragraphs to get the gist of what the author was talking about.
Everyone who has read this book originally years ago should pick it back up listen to it read it again it is as useful clear today as it was decades ago
reading was changing pace all the time. At some point it was too slow to pay attention to the book.
The author has mastered the art of storytelling.
This was an outstanding listen and I highly recommend it.
insightful, gracious, liberating
This author links valuable information from traditional stories with psychoanalytical ;theories in a fun, accessible way. wow.
This was my first but I have since listened to many and this is one of my favourites ..
To be our natural selves is so important. Women are different from men and that's ok.
I love the author's messages so much I gave a copy to my daughter who is emerging into womanhood. This book has been life changing for me.
And I feel that the author narrating it gives it additional life. I too, tried to read the book awhile back and just couldn't get into it. The audiobook is a whole other story. If you are trying to reclaim your wild woman... this is it.
Dr. Estes is a fantastic keeper of the stories. Her story telling leves you wanting more. Well researched and presented. I recommend any of her work. This one is a great start into her many works
I like how she shares the stories and makes the revelancy to todays world.
This one is just as amazing as any of her books
I read the book after it came out and loved it.
This audio version was flat and boring due to the narrator. This was very disappointing. Another narrator might have given it more life.
