Motherlines

(1978)
(The second book in the Holdfast series)
A novel by

 

"Everything I've always wanted from an adventure, and then some!"
Samuel R Delany


"[Motherlines is] a pioneer exercise in women's fantasies of independence, skill, freedom. It has a robust, earthy beauty. She has a genius for grasping ideas and dreams that are in the air and making them concrete and dramatic in her fiction."
Marge Piercy


Alldera had risked her life to escape the Holdfast, where men ruled fems in a bestial society based on fear. She had followed a whisper: the legend of the free fems who lived without masters. Instead, she had found the Motherline Tribes. They proud Riding Women who bred without men, the dark-laughing warriors who dared her to be free!
