Description: What was it like to live as a queen in ancient Egypt, or as an Amazon warrior in western Africa? African Princess tells the stories of six remarkable royal women and the eras in which they lived, from 1473 B.C. to the present. Some lived in great luxury; others lived in exile as freedom fighters. The rise of the slave trade and the arrival of European colonists unsettled the entire continent and forced rulers to find ways to govern and protect their kingdoms. Consequently, many of these royal women ruled in extremely difficult times, marked by palace intrigue, foreign invasion, and harrowing adventure. (48 pgs) Ages 8-12

Ashay says, "This is one of my favorite books of all time because it provides powerful images and stories of real African Princesses who ruled their own kingdoms. Such stories encourage young girls to visualize their own destiny. Although, now out of print this book is must for every library. I have one copy for sale."
