The truly remarkable story of a unique woman living on a remote mountain wildlife refuge nearing sixty, solitary, solar-powered and almost self-sufficient and the ups and downs of life that led her there. Full of energy, humour, and love for her own and the wider environment, this candid book inspires, entertains and informs. A writer with insufficient income, a grandma with unwelcome arthritis, she was unsure if she could manage the hard work and mechanical demands of a totally self-sufficient lifestyle, but she gave it a go and found it full of funny incidents and great rewards. With only the wildlife as her neighbours, she learnt to live in tune with nature on her wildlife refuge, helping to repair past damage and trying to do no more.
