From Tamora Pierce, the third book in the Song of the Lioness Quartet, honored with the Margaret A. Edwards Award.

Newly knighted, Alanna of Trebond seeks adventure in the vast desert of Tortall. Captured by fierce desert dwellers, she is forced to prove herself in a duel to the death—either she will be killed or she will be inducted into the tribe. Although she triumphs, dire challenges lie ahead. As her mythic fate would have it, Alanna soon becomes the tribe's first female shaman—despite the desert dwellers’ grave fear of the foreign woman warrior. Alanna must fight to change the ancient tribal customs of the desert tribes—for their sake and for the sake of all Tortall.

    The Woman Who Rides Like A Man

    Ever since I started reading The Song of the Lioness series, I have not been able to stop. I loved this book and the ones before it, and I look forward to reading the next and final book in the series, "Lioness Rampant". Whoever reads this series will come to love Alanna and the others as if they were your own friends. I especially love the King of the Thieves, George.
