Woman Wins Longsword Competition

When I was growing up, girls were pretty much regulated to victim in books.  I always like a bit of action and wanted to see the girls and the women having adventures.  Nancy Drew was great, but a lot of times she still needed Ned to rescue her.  I would have loved though to see a book like Tamora Pierce’s Lady Knight.

But now we have the real live Samantha Swords, who competes with swords.  I like the fact she’s average looking (though muscular), and especially that the armor makes sense!
