Adrienne Mayor has written an ambitious 'Encyclopedia Amazonica' as she calls her book, a kind of compendium of information about the Amazons... Her charming and seamless style can certainly provoke a reader's interest in the still distant and unknown terra incognita of the Black Sea and Caucasus regions and their nomadic life. (Tassos A. Kaplanis, Journal of Historical Geography) - According to the Kirkus Review, this book is a ‘must read’.
