PHOOLAN DEVI

Coming in April!
PHOOLAN DEVI, Rebel Queen
Claire Fauvel
She rebelled against the ancient tribal rules of India, her country, resulting in her becoming a Robin Hood type bandit. Essentially sold at the age of 11 to become a wife for a much older man, she ran away when he raped her. From that point on, there were few choices for her but to join a roaming gang of bandits, her ambition leading her to become their rebel chief. Ultimately, society caught up with her and she even became a strong voice for change as a representative in the Indian parliament.
A story of courage and unbending determination in front of centuries of established inequities in the classic Indian caste system. For mature readers.

"STARRED REVIEW. A woman operating with an eye-for-an-eye attitude is a rare and powerful thing, and this heroic tale of Phoolan’s journey from despair and abuse to justice and renown, is intoxicating."
-Library Journal
"This striking biography is as memorable as its vigilante heroine."
