Beyond the Sword Maiden

An Alternative to the Hero’s Journey for Healing and Affirming

“All too often both traditional storytellers and the media regard the Hero’s Journey as the ‘one true recipe for a goodstory.’ In this well-researched and clearly written book, Dorothy Cleveland and Barbara Schutzgruber prove that there are other kinds of stories that are just as essential tothe human experience: Tales of survival and transformation that we may encounter at any point in our lives.”

–Csenge Virág Zalka, storyteller, author Tales of Superhuman Powers and Dancing on Blades
