Takaka Library: Book Launch - Wild At Heart

Friday 11th December 2020

You are invited to the launch of Miriam Lancewood's new book Wild At Heart.

Miriam Lancewood's first book Woman in the Wilderness told how she and her husband, Peter, lived for six years in the wilderness of New Zealand, hunting and gathering, and roaming the mountains like nomads.

A year later they left New Zealand to explore other wild places. They walked 2000 km through the forests of Europe and along the coast of Turkey, mostly camping under trees and cooking by fire. They lived on the edge, embracing insecurity, and found the unexpected.

Sometimes it was pure bliss, sometimes it was terrifying. But when Miriam and Peter moved on to the Australian desert, they met with disaster.

Wild At Heart tells that story. It's about life and death, courage and the power of love.
