Queen Serpot rules the Land of Women, where the Amazon women live free, without men, and hunt and fight their own battles. But one day their peace is broken. An army of Egyptian soldiers is approaching their land, led by their prince, Pedikhons. Pedikhons has heard stories of these warrior women. Now he has come to see them with his own eyes--and to challenge them to combat. But the brave Serpot and her women are full of surprises. Can woman truly equal man in strength and courage? This story of love and war is based on an actual Egyptian scroll from the Greco-Roman period. [Includes] hieroglyphic translations of key phrases, intricate paintings in the Egyptian and Assyrian styles, and extensive notes about both cultures.--publisher website
