Product description

Product Description

"I went to such-and-such a place, stripped, dressed up, and cut my hair, went hither and thither, embarked, went into port, took to roving, slew, wounded, embezzled, and roamed about till the present moment, when I place myself at the feet of your most illustrious Lordship."
Shortly before making her final vows in 1600, Catalina de Erauso runs away from the nunnery in which she has been raised and disguises herself as a man in order to take up life in the New World, crossing over the frontiers of country and gender with her transitions. Enlisting as a soldier, de Erauso gambles, fights and boasts her way across the New World, before announcing the truth of her gender, and returning to Europe as a celebrity.

"The truth is this: that I am a woman!"

Unabridged, with a foreword by K.L. Webber.


The Adventuresses Club Press is dedicated to popularising the achievements of both historic and contemporary women. In the digital age, it is impossible to excuse the invisibility of our historic sisters, and we at the Adventuresses Club are determined to ensure that the erasure of women's achievements from the historic record is reversed.

Our original focus on women's achievements was in the fields of exploration and adventure. Over time, this will expand to include important fictional works by women and women-presenting authors. Intersectionality is a key value of The Adventuresses Club, and we continuously attempt to provide intersectional feminist discourse on a field which has been historically limited to middle-class white women, by representing the works of women from non-European backgrounds wherever possible.
