Njinga "The Warrior Queen"

Foreword Review — Spring 2013

Girl power through the lens of history. Part of The Thinking Girl’s Treasury of Dastardly Dames, West African Njinga reveals her intellectual might as she wars with the Portuguese invaders over the lucrative slave trade. Fascinating details such as what she ate and wore help to bring her to life nearly five hundred years later. Ages nine and up.
