"... sparkles with wit, intelligence and bold characterization." —Women’s Review of Books

"... a ripping yarn... admirable translation... sensitive introductory essay." —Times Literary Supplement

"... a remarkable journal worthy of the attention of a wide audience." —Doris Grumbach, National Public Radio

In male guise, Nadezhda Durova served ten years in the Russian cavalry. The Cavalry Maiden is a lively narrative which appeals in our own time as a unique and gripping contribution to the literature of female experience.
