Amanda Summer is an archaeologist and award-winning writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Islands, Archaeology, Odyssey and The Best Travel Writing. For the past 30 years she has returned to the Greek island of Ithaka, where she searched for the palace of Odysseus starting in 1984 with a team from Washington University in St. Louis. Currently she is on staff with the Iklaina Archaeological Project in Pylos, Greece. Even though she has traced the odyssey of history's most famous male adventurer, she has a passion for stories about women who have found transformation through travel.
"OH MY GODS! Amanda Summer lights up the country with magic, history, power, and mystery. Do not go to Greece without this book...though you will definitely be there as you read. She lures you in with sparkling waters, caves, temples, sculptures, foods...and her lively prose and passion will bring you into lives and loves, healings, and an underworld that feels as real as the temples you can touch. Greek mythology, as she passionately and powerfully describes it, is alive and well and still hovering. And there is also the Greece of today, with foods and places you won't want to miss." --Rita Golden Gelman, Author of Tales of a Female Nomad: Living at Large in the World "This book makes a perfect traveling companion for any woman discovering Greece, whether she's exploring its ancient ruins or modern life. Pull it out of your bag, open up to your location, and get ready for a fresh perspective, interesting insight, or useful information--everything you'd want from a buddy joining you on your odyssey." --Eleni Gage, author of North of Ithaka, The Ladies of Managua and Other Waters "100 Places in Greece Every Woman Should Go is a captivating account of thousands of years of female experience in one of the most enchanting places of the world. Amanda Summer, an archaeologist with an intricate and profound knowledge of Greece, masterfully combines the hard facts of history with the romance and mystery of Greek culture. Her lively, powerful, and intimate writing brings to life not only the ruins, the landscape, and the culture of Greece, but also the connection between the past and the present. In her pages, the formidable heroines of Greece come alive amidst the olive trees, the bright sun, the turquoise waters, and the ancient architecture. The author manages to capture and convey the passion, liveliness, and joie de vivre that define Greek culture and inspire our lives today. This book is a necessary companion to anyone interested in exploring Greece and the history of women in western civilization." --Professor Michael Cosmopoulos, author of Bronze Age Eleusis and the Origins of the Eleusinian Mysteries
