Miriam Lancewood

Dutch-born Miriam Lancewood lived for seven years with her husband in the New Zealand mountains. They never stayed long in one place, but moved around like nomads. They slept in a tent, cooked on fires and Miriam learnt how to hunt with a bow and arrow and, later, a rifle. They lived by hunting wild animals and gathering edible plants. Their life is about embracing insecurity and stepping into the unknown. Miriam wrote a book about their adventures, philosophy, and insights. Woman in the Wilderness quickly became popular, and is now translated into Dutch, French, German and Chinese.
