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, slept in a tent and cooked with fire. Lancewood learned how to hunt with a bow and arrow and later with a rifle. They hunted wild animals and gathered edible plants to survive. Their life is about embracing insecurity and stepping into the unknown. Lancewood wrote a book, Woman in the Wilderness, about their adventures, philosophy and insights; it quickly became popular and has been translated into Dutch, French, German and Chinese.
