More About This Title Herland

English

When three American men discover a community of women, living in perfect isolation in the Amazon, they decide there simply must be men somewhere. How could these women survive without man's knowledge, experience and strength, not to mention reproductive power? In fact, what they have found is a civilization free from disease, poverty and the weight of tradition. All alone, the women have created a society of calm and prosperity, a feminist utopia that dares to threaten the very concept of male superiority.

"This is a Utopian novel by a feminist set in the Amazon rainforest - and it is funny . . . Prepare for a feminist lecture, but one that does not lose sight of the need to entertain." —Guardian
