From the backcover of the book: In the sixties a rumour began to circulate in the New Zealand back country; a good-looking German sheila had been seen hiking around the bush and mountains, on her own. She'd appeared in the Kainanawa Ranges, the Urewera country, the Tarawera and several places in the South Island. The rumours persisted into the seventies. The lone German woman had by now been seen at camps and huts from one end of the country to the other, always on her own and always movin' on...That woman was Sigrid Crump, and this is her remarkable story. Sigrid's solo travels took her to remote parts of New Zealands back country, and from North Island bush to the ice of Southern winters. Alone for weeks at a time, she developed physical and mental survival skills and a deep love for this country's wild places. Few people have experienced New Zealand in quite the same way.
