Summary
A woman's life erupts in a feverish spree of vengeful violence, shocking the world--and bringing a government to its knees--in this tale of modern day savagery run wild. Born of low caste, 11 year-old Phoolan is sold into marriage with a man 20 years her senior in exchange for a cow and a rusted bicycle. Challenging her fate, she escapes and falls in with a pack of ruthless bandits. But the political structure of the male- dominated gang comes with its own set of brutal humiliations, and Phoolan must struggle to rise above a culture determined to bring her down, in a bloody coup that electrified a nation and transformed one woman's world forever.
