Yamamba: In Search of the Japanese Mountain Witch

Stone Bridge Press is excited to announce the publication of Yamamba: In Search of the Japanese Mountain Witch, a unique collection compiled and edited by Rebecca Copeland, Professor of Japanese Literature, and Linda C. Ehrlich, scholar of Japanese cinema and a poet.

Alluring, nurturing, dangerous, and vulnerable, the yamamba, or Japanese mountain witch, has intrigued audiences for centuries. What is it about the fusion of mountains with the solitary old woman that produces such an enigmatic figure? And why does she still call to us in this modern, scientific era?

This unique collection represents the creative and surprising ways artists and scholars from North America and Japan have encountered the yamamba.

Pre-orders are now up ahead of the May 25th release date.
