Bapsy Pavry’s retelling of some of the stories from the Shanama was well received when first published in 1930. This book is an excellent introduction to the subject for a younger reader while Ms Pavry’s more advanced readers will find the reference to the original Persian text, appended at the end of each story, quite helpful.

Beginning from the earliest or Peshdadian period, featuring heroines like Farahnak, Reaba and Tehmina, the author takes us up to the Sasanian era, covering heroines like Shirin, Purandokht and Azarmdokht
