A history of women who wrote haiku (and tanka) from the beginning of recorded history in Japan, across the centuries to Europe, then to the North American continent and back to Japan ending in 1990. During the years since, a publisher was sought, but no one wanted to take on the book. So like the Little Red Hen, I am publishing this book myself. This book that needs to be read, needed to be written, needs to be saved by men and women and writers of all the genres indebted to haiku.
