Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype - Clarissa Pinkola Estés
I could have sworn I'd reviewed this book. Very interesting for its use of stories. The wild woman is a powerful ... metaphor is the wrong word, and I don't want archetype. I'll settle for "figure". The wild woman is all of us, our friends, families and enemies, but in each we only see part of her because we're constantly trying to keep her under control. I have a weakness for self-help books that say "be strong, be yourself". But this is way more than a self-help book. It pulls out the power of stories.

Ages ago I said something on my blog about storytellers (writers, movie makers, singers, etc) being the shamans of the modern world. This book celebrates that truth, in its own way.
