Miriam is a young Dutch woman living a primitive, nomadic life in the heart of the mountains with her New Zealand husband. She lives simply in a tent or hut, and survives by hunting wild animals and foraging edible plants, relying on only minimal supplies.

She loves her life and feels free, connected to the land, and happy...There's a lot of drama out there in the wild, and Miriam knows how to spin a good yarn.

This in itself creates enormous energy and clarity in body and mind.' Miriam Lancewood.
